Hi All,

I have a member who is extending. What are the rules for the Segal Award during extension, does she accrue more depending on the amount of time that she extends? Or are Segal Awards not available for those in extension and she will get End of Service Award instead at the rate of accrual $125/month for each month of extension?

Hello Kaitlyn, 

If a VISTA member selected the Education Award and successfully completes their year of service, they will receive the Education Award.  If they select the Education Award and then extend their service, they earn the Education Award for the year that they served and then earn a pro-rated cash stipend for the period of extension.  The cash stipend accrues daily at a rate of $4.11 so the length of their extension determines the amount of the cash stipend they receive.
