The program offers students a way to integrate their experiences as volunteers into a continued program that enriches the ideas of international and intercultural dialogue.
The IIC program awards Fellowships to all incoming RPCVs, but only two receive the 12 credit scholarship.
Benefits for RPCV Fellows are:
- 12-credit tuition scholarship (awarded to two RPCVs only)
- 10-hour credit waiver—Fellows must complete only 50 credit hours rather than the typical 60.
- The foreign language proficiency requirement is waived for ALL returned volunteers.
Fellows are also eligible for other merit-based and need-based scholarships.
