College Advising Corps at Furman University is seeking full-time
College Advisers to serve in South Carolina high schools. Part of
the National College Advising Corps network, our College Advisers
work with students and their families to help students figure out
“life after high school.” Our mission is to increase the number of
low-income, first-generation college, and underrepresented high
school students who enter and complete higher education.

department. While the day-to-day work varies based upon the needs
of each school, College Advisers focus on providing one-on-one
advising to students, engaging with parents and other family
members, and assisting students/families with college and financial
aid applications. Advisers also plan and manage events which help
to build a college-going culture in their school.
College Advisers are AmeriCorps members who initially sign up for
an 11-month term of service (July 19, 2022 - May 31, 2023), which
is renewable for a second year. College Advisers receive a living
stipend (salary), health insurance and other benefits, and upon
completion of their term of service they also receive a Segal
AmeriCorps Education Award. For the 2022-23 school year, we are
