Peace Corps Prep

Peace Corps Prep is a certificate program for ISU undergraduate students interested in a future with international or non-profit work.

You will gain sector-specific skills (education, health, environment, youth in development, community economic development), language proficiency, intercultural competence, and leadership experience and will - upon completion of the program - receive a certificate from the Peace Corps, a designation on your ISU transcript, and a competitive edge when you apply for international or nonprofit jobs!

The program is housed in Global Studies, but is open to students from all majors. We encourage you to apply during your freshman or sophomore year.

To apply:

  1. Attend a Peace Corp Prep information session or set up an appointment with our coordinator to learn more about the program
  2. Meet one-on-one with Peace Corp Prep Coordinator or advisors to determine opportunities for fieldwork, intercultural experiences, and to confirm coursework selected to fulfill the program requirements
  3. Submit a completed application
  4. If approved, attend a Peace Corp Prep Orientation for further guidance and to meet other Peace Corp Prep students on campus.
