How to Apply to OSRC



The 2019-20 term runs from August 16th, 2019 to August 15th, 2018.

To Apply
  1. Wait until the application opens on February 1st.
  2. Go to My AmeriCorps and click “Apply to Serve” to create an account.
  3. You will need to build the 8-part application and select 2 references. Do this all in one sitting! Consider answering the questions on a word and copy/pasting, to avoid timeout issues.
  4. Once you have your application, click “Search Listings” (starting February 5th)
  5. Type “Ohio Stream Restore Corps” in the “Program Name” box.
  6.  Click “Apply” and follow the instructions.
Tips for a great AmeriCorps application:
  • Make sure both of your references have sent in their forms before you submit the application to us. If references come in after submission, AmeriCorps program staff may not see them until they manually check.
  • DOUBLE CHECK that you have the reference email address right. Inform your references you are using them!
  • Think about the program you are applying to. How can you tailor your motivational statement to show you fit in this program? Have you listed all your relevant skills? Note that you can create multiple applications, one for each type of program you apply to.
  • Start early! The AmeriCorps application is made up of 8 parts. You can save and come back to it, but make sure to leave yourself enough time to finish the application and submit it before the deadline (July 15th).
