Tulane University is announcing a special initiative to make graduate study more accessible to U.S. Peace Corps volunteers (PCVs) and Fulbright student grantees called back from international placements because of concerns over the spread of COVID-19.

As a university with a strong tradition of public service and global studies, Tulane is offering tuition scholarships of up to 50 percent toward the entire cost of degree programs of particular interest to returning Peace Corps volunteers and Fulbright student grantees. In some cases, these scholarships may be combined with other Tulane scholarships resulting in greater financial support, including full tuition plus stipends for some PhD programs. This significant scholarship initiative is being offered for summer 2020, fall 2020 or spring 2021.

This initiative also features an expedited admission process for returning PCVs and Fulbright student grantees, including a promise that applications for summer and fall will be reviewed and decisions rendered within 10 business days of submission of all requested application materials.

Participating Tulane degree programs are located both on Tulane’s campuses in New Orleans and through online/remote programs.

A wide range of master’s degrees and PhD programs are available through this opportunity, including the ones below. For a complete list of programs, degrees, and additional information, please visit https://tulane.edu/peace-corps-fulbright.
