Three Things UW Students Should Know

to Launch Their International Career with the Peace Corps

Earlier this week, Universum announced the Peace Corps is a “Top Ideal Employer” according to a survey of college students and young professionals. With benefits including living and working abroad, learning a new language, receiving a living stipend with medical/dental benefits, and student loan deferment, it’s easy to see why the federal agency is an excellent way to launch an international career.

UW students interested in serving a community overseas with the Peace Corps should take note of the following dates and activities:

(1)    Apply By Friday, April 1

For students who plan to depart for service in April, May or June 2012, it is recommended to submit an application by April 1. Continue your application or start your online application now.
