Claremont Graduate University
City Year is proud to partner with Claremont Graduate University, the only comprehensive university in the nation dedicated entirely to graduate-level education, offering an annual tuition fellowship.
Claremont Graduate University offers City Year AmeriCorps members, alums and staff
A $12,000 annual tuition fellowship ($6,000 per semester) for qualifying graduate programs will be awarded to all admitted City Year applicants per year and is renewable in subsequent years of the program until the degree has been completed.
The scholarship award amount is based on 12 units of enrollment. The amount will be adjusted if students enroll in more or less than 12 units per semester.
Scholarships are awarded to City Year AmeriCorps members and alums who complete at least one term of service and City Year staff employed for at least two years.
The tuition fellowship will be available for graduate programs within the following schools:
- The Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management: a leading graduate school focused on ethical management and values-based leadership education.
