Grad School? Peace Corps? Why Not Both? Peace Corps Masters International Info Session – Mon. 10/1 6pm

Thinking about Peace Corps?  What about Grad School?  Why not BOTH?

Master’s International (MI) offers the unique opportunity to integrate a master’s degree with overseas service in a variety of fields at more than 80 academic institutions nationwide.  Established in 1987, MI produces Peace Corps Volunteers with additional education and skills to serve overseas – and helps you earn your advanced degree along the way.  As an MI student, you have an unparalleled opportunity to live and work overseas while completing a master’s degree in your field of interest.  The benefits of the MI program can last a lifetime.

Many of our partner schools offer research or teaching assistantships, scholarships, or tuition waivers to Volunteers while serving in the Peace Corps – and all offer credit for service. The schools also dedicate talented faculty and staff members, who serve as ongoing resources throughout your academic and overseas experiences.

Some other benefits include:

  • Language, cross-cultural, and technical training
  • Transportation costs to and from the country of service
  • Living and housing expenses during overseas service
  • Medical and dental coverage
  • Deferment and possible cancellation of certain government education loans
  • Readjustment allowance upon completion of service
  • Career counseling and job search facilities

 

CU-Boulder has four MI programs in the fields of Geography, Education, Environmental Studies, and Business Administration.
