Contact Information
Address Information
* State of Residence is defined as the location you resided at the moment in time you applied to serve in AmeriCorps. For college students: an individual applying to serve or work who is enrolled as a full-time college student is deemed to be residing in the state where they live for the purpose of attending school without regards to whether or not that home is on or off-campus, and whether or not that home is in the same state as the college is located. Programs may NOT opt to use any other basis for identifying the student’s state of residence, such as the student’s family home.
