PHILADELPHIA — Through a partnership with Peace Corps Fellows/USA, the University of Pennsylvania now offers returning Peace Corps volunteers the opportunity to attend graduate school at a reduced cost, while aiding underserved U.S. communities through internships.

Penn’s Master’s in Public Health Program is the only program in Philadelphia of its kind that is an approved Peace Corps Fellows/USA partner.

The MPH Program is committed to improving public health both globally and domestically and as a part of this commitment provides an automatic one-time $6,000 scholarship to returned Peace Corps volunteers who meet admission requirements of the program.

The Penn MPH program is part of a Peace Corps Fellows network, made up of more than 40 universities in the United States.
