If you're a returned Peace Corps volunteer who enrolls in the Josef Korbel School of International Studies, we'll automatically accept you into the Korbel RPCV Fellows program.
You can learn more about our top-ranked school of international studies—including prominent alumni, such as former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former Army Chief of Staff General George Casey—by visiting the Korbel School website.
RPCV FELLOWS AT KORBEL
Returned volunteers can choose to be automatically enrolled in the Paul D. Coverdell Peace Corps Fellows program, or they can choose to be eligible for merit-based academic scholarships.
Those choosing to be Peace Corps fellows get the following benefits:
- an 18-hour credit waiver—Fellows must complete 72 credit hours rather than the typical 90.
- The language proficiency requirement for Korbel is waived.
Peace Corps fellows must also complete a 75-hour practicum that addresses the needs of underserved communities within the United States or its territories. This practicum may be paid.
RPCVs may also complete a separate internship anywhere they choose. Many fellows choose to do their practicum in Denver during the school year and then complete a separate internship during the summer.
