The Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M partners with AmeriCorps in its MPSA (Master of Public Service and Administration) and MIA (Master of International Affairs) degrees*.

The MPSA and MIA degrees pay the application fee for AmeriCorps applicants, provide priority points in admissions consideration, grant aid for FT service of $7,000 or more each year, provide in-state tuition rates, offer one-year enrollment deferrals, and can possibly waive the required professional internship requirement for seasoned AmeriCorps alumni. In year two, first-year awards are renewable by maintaining a minimum GPA or students can apply for graduate assistant (GA) positions that replace their first-year award. We value AmeriCorps alumni and many receive awards that exceed $10K or more, with several receiving what amount to full-ride considerations.

*This Bush School agreement does not extend to the Executive level degrees (EMPSA, MIP, MIP-DC campus), the joint MIA-MPH (while in the MPH portion), or online certificates.  It only works with the MPSA and MIA on-campus degrees.
