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.

No. You can find programs that will help you pay for school if you have Peace Corps experience. Some lenders will forgive some of your debt for time served but Peace Corps does not make any of those decisions.

false The Peace Corps is alive, well and thriving. My book "Making Peace with the World, Photographs of Peace Corps Volunteers" documents volunteers continuing the legacy started over 50 years ago. https://www.facebook.com/MPWTW

One can work for Peace Corps as soon as he or she is available for volunteering work in the areas of education, health, community development, agriculture, environment and IT. One should support also the goals of Peace Corps.
