What is Peace Corps Prep and Who can Participate

UWM has partnered with the Peace Corps to help students prepare for the application process to the Peace Corps and ultimately fulfil their dream of volunteering and travelling through the Peace Corps after college.

Undergraduates from any major who plan to apply to the Peace Corps for a post-college experience are encouraged to participate. You will find yourself in a cohort with students majoring in global studies, business, arts, education, nursing, various languages, history, anthropology, environmental science, and many other programs.

Upon successful completion of the prep program, you will receive a certificate from the Peace Corps and a competitive edge when you apply to the Peace Corps. The certificate does not guarantee acceptance into the Peace Corps.

See UWM’s official Peace Corps page for more information, such as:

  • Program requirements
  • Sector specific skills, such as economic and youth development
  • World language skills
  • Intercultural competence
  • Professional development
