If you are a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV), we encourage you to apply to SPEA.
- Your maturity and self-discipline developed by working through challenging situations in the field is a direct indicator of academic success in the classroom. RPCVs have outstanding experiences at SPEA.
- The perspective you bring has a positive influence on the social and academic perspective of your peers. You possess unique life skills and experiences that enhance the overall academic environment.
- As an RPCV, you’ll receive a graduate school application fee waiver (worth $55) from Indiana University.
When you enroll in SPEA after your Peace Corps service, you have the opportunity to merge your Peace Corps volunteer service with your academic interests.
