The Corporate Whistleblower Center is extremely interested in hearing from a whistleblower with proof a university, a community college, a online university, or a trade school is defrauding the federal government, because this type of information can produce some stupendous whistleblower rewards.
As an example the Justice Department recently announced the Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) has agreed to pay $4.08 million to resolve allegations under the False Claims Act that it allegedly submitted false claims to the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) concerning AmeriCorps state and national grants. MCCCD is the entity responsible for operating community colleges in Maricopa County, Arizona, and is based in Phoenix.
According to the Justice Department, "CNCS is an independent federal agency that administers AmeriCorps, among other national service programs. MCCCD obtained AmeriCorps funding for Project Ayuda, a program that proposed to engage students in national service. In order to receive an AmeriCorps education award, a student had to meet certain service-hour requirements.
"MCCCD allegedly improperly certified that students had completed the required number of service hours so that they would earn an education award. This resulted in CNCS providing education awards to these students. MCCCD also allegedly improperly received grant funds from CNCS to administer the project."
The whistleblower will receive $775,827 for their information.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging education insiders to contact us if they have proof of substantial fraud involving the federal government. Aside from not certifying students properly for AmeriCorps funding we would like to hear from whistleblowers about online colleges that are providing Veterans with a substandard education, federal block grant abuse, or overbilling in our nation's school lunch programs."

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center:
- Do not go to the government first if you are a major whistleblower. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the federal government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake.”
- Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward.
- Do not try to force a government contractor or corporation to come clean to the government about their wrongdoing. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Fraud is so rampant among federal contractors that any suggestion of exposure might result in an instant job termination, or harassment of the whistleblower. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help find the right law firms to assist in advancing your information.”
The Corporate Whistleblower Center wants to emphasize there are high quality whistleblowers in every state including California, New York, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Virginia, Vermont, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Missouri, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska.
