Scholarship Central Accepting Applications for AmeriCorps Positions
Posted by Katie McCarty on 06/13/2017
Scholarship Central Access Program at The Muskingum County Community Foundation has been selected to host as many as four AmeriCorps Ohio College Guides through College Now Greater Cleveland. This will be the seventh year we have participated in this program.
AmeriCorps Ohio College Guides will make a real impact on the lives of Ohio students and their surrounding community by promoting college access on a personal level. Members will serve as access advisors, mentoring and guiding typically underserved Ohioans - first generation college-going, low-income, and minority - in getting the information they need to make educated decisions and plans for their future.
The Ohio College Guides program places recent college graduates into schools and community centers to provide a pipeline of current information about the college-going-process to motivate students and families to think seriously about the plans and goals that will lead them into an opportunity-rich future.

Applications must be submitted through the above website due to program specifications and no paper or emailed applications will be accepted.
