Peace Corps Prep is a program created through the partnership between Idaho State University and the United States Peace Corps. Through integrating coursework and field experience, you will gain sector-specific skills (education, health, environment, youth in development, community economic development), language proficiency, intercultural competence, and leadership skills. Once you complete the different components of the program, you receive a certificate from the Peace Corps, a designation on your ISU transcript, and a competitive edge when you apply to the Peace Corps or similar work with other organizations!

The program is housed in the Department of Global Studies and Languages, 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.

Go the Global Studies and Languages website for more information.
