University Partnerships

Learn more about City Year's University partnerships and the unique benefits offered to alums and the City Year community.

City Year Alumni University Partners are a network of higher education institutions providing benefits to members of the City Year network. Our wide range of partners believe the service experience of City Year alums can be an incredible asset to their communities, no matter the specific focus of their program of study.

Benefits offered to City Year alums

Every partner school offers a combination of the following exclusive benefits:

  • Application fee waiver
  • Enrollment deferral for currently serving AmeriCorps members accepted to a partner school who decide to serve for additional time with City Year.
  • Exclusive scholarship opportunities. Note: while you’re eligible for all merit and need-based funding offered by our University Partners, the institution reserves the right to grant you an institutional scholarship in lieu of, but not in addition to, the City Year scholarship.

Who is eligible?

  • Currently serving AmeriCorps members at any of our United States locations who, at the time of university enrollment, will have completed at least one City Year service term
  • City Year alums who have completed at least one City Year service term at any of our U.S. locations
  • Current City Year staff members who have been employed for at least two years
