45 colleges selected as part of first round of ‘Californians for All’ College Corps

Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday that 45 colleges and universities would receive the first round of funding in the new Californians For All College Corps.

The corps, which is similar to AmeriCorps, will deploy up to 6,500 students from the 45 colleges to work or intern in organizations that are working to improve K-12 education, climate action and food insecurity in California. Students can earn a $10,000 stipend for participating after a year of service.

“California is a world leader in both higher education and service,” Newsom said. “The #CaliforniansForAll College Corps advances these priorities by connecting Californians of different backgrounds with enriching service opportunities throughout the state while making college more affordable for our state’s future leaders. We hope the Corps will be replicated across the nation.”

Newsom and the Legislature created the program last year with a $146 million investment.
