Does the peace corps pay for college?

There are definitely some benefits to joining the Peace Corps in this regard. The only student loans that can be forgiven through Peace Corps are Pell Grants- otherwise you just have to defer payment while you volunteer. But many schools partner with the Peace Corps either through Peace Corps/Fellows or Masters International and you can potentially get scholarships, full tuition, etc for being in the Peace Corps. I am currently a grad student and get to waive 18 credits in my program (which would have otherwise cost around $17,000) just because I was a Peace Corps Volunteer. How generous the program is depends on the school. See the related link below to the educational benefits of joining the Peace Corps.
