Peace Corps Fellows Program

The experiences that Peace Corps Alumni bring are valuable to our community.  Peace Corps Fellows who are accepted to participating graduate programs in the John H. Lounsbury College of Education may be awarded assistantships that relate to their experience and training in the Peace Corps. Fellowships may include a combination of tuition, stipend, and/or housing.  Upon successful completion of their Peace Corps Volunteer assignments, Peace Corps Fellows can apply to the College of Education Programs (the application process is the same for all applicants, but see the Peace Corps web site for more information about eligibility requirements.)

Assistantships are awarded by the John H. Lounsbury College of Education for applicants at the M.Ed. and Ed.S. levels.  Early application is key. For consideration for a fellowship, applicants apply to the Assistant Dean of the College of Education.  This application process MUST be completed by March 1 to be considered.
