BACKGROUND: College Corps is a statewide paid service program that provides meaningful work to underserved college students, helping them graduate on time and with less debt while benefiting the local community. Students will receive up to $10,000 for completing a year of service. It’s the first time that students covered by California Assembly Bill 540 – a nonresident tuition exemption for undocumented and other eligible students at the state’s public colleges and universities – have been included in a state service program.
