GSU Gets AmeriCorps Grant

University Park, IL–(ENEWSPF)– Governors State University (GSU) recently received a $9,056 AmeriCorps Grant from Illinois Campus Compact (ILCC) to fund service learning opportunities for GSU students.

The ILCC was awarded 100 part-time AmeriCorps slots from Washington Campus Compact for the Students in Service (SIS) program. GSU was one of 12 institutions awarded funds to support student participation this year in the SIS program. 

The SIS program supports the recruitment of college students to volunteer in their communities – helping to increase the capacity of local nonprofit agencies and schools and meeting critical needs in communities. In return for completing 300 hours of volunteer work in underserved communities, eight GSU students will each receive a $1,132 education award to help offset their education expenses.

Sheree Y. Sanderson, Director of Student Engagement and Service Learning, is the SIS campus coordinator for the program. For more information, call 708-534-4552 or email [email protected].
