How to Apply
You must apply to both the Peace Corps and the partnering graduate school(s) of your choice: Your applications will be considered separately.
First, apply to the partnering graduate school of your choice. Search the graduate schools database for information about specific programs, then contact the school program that interests you for application requirements and deadlines. Make sure to let them know that you wish to be a Master’s International student.
Once you have been accepted into your graduate school program, immediately begin your Peace Corps application. Browse this website for information about applying to the Peace Corps. As part of the Peace Corps application process, you will be requested to provide an acceptance letter from your university.
Graduate school requirements vary. However, most programs require a bachelor's degree from an accredited college and the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), or equivalent. Browse this website for information about becoming a Peace Corps Volunteer.
