What was the Michigan Service Scholars (MSS) AmeriCorps Program?
The Michigan Service Scholars Program [MSS] provided over $350,000 annually in education awards state-wide to students attending Michigan Campus Compact [MiCC] member campuses through a grant from The Michigan Community Service Commission and The Corporation for National and Community Service. Students that completed 300 hours of community service during one calendar year were awarded a $1175 AmeriCorps education award, that were used for qualified educational purposes. Community service hours were to be completed during the academic year and/or over class breaks. To complete 300 hours during a regular academic year, students had to average 9.5-10 hours of community service per week. 

In order to enroll in the MSS program, students had to be:

  • a U.S. citizen
  • at least 17 years of age
  • enrolled at a Michigan Campus Compact member campus
  • able to provide photo identification
