AmeriCorps is a program established by the United States government, administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service, an independent government agency, and funded primarily by federal and state sources. Its members receive a small monthly stipend from the government and are rewarded with scholarship funds upon the completion of some set amount of hours of work. The stipend, scholarship, and hours requirements have been modified from time to time throughout the existence of the program.
