Information on Peace Corps Service
Opportunities are available for those with a four-year degree OR a combination of job experience and a two-year degree OR substantial experience, in lieu of a degree, in specialized areas. (Some specialized areas are: skilled trades, farm/agribusiness, vegetable gardening/nursery/forestry or fish cultivation/production, business management, computer technology, nursing (RN/LPN/LVN), non-profit management/organizational development, and work with at-risk youth.)
Peace Corps benefits include medical, dental and housing, as well as a monthly stipend, transportation to and from your host country, graduate study benefits, 24 vacation days a year, and a $6,075 readjustment allowance after your 2-year service. Some student loans can be deferred during Peace Corps service. After your 2-year service, former Volunteers receive one year of noncompetitive eligibility for employment in the federal government.
The Peace Corps is a 27-month commitment, which includes 12 weeks of language training in the host country. We encourage you to apply a year before you want to depart.
