Peace Corps Graduate School Programs Enjoy Record Participation

Michigan Tech currently has 34 students serving abroad through its Master’s International Peace Corps programs.  This is the highest level of participation across the country – for the fourth year in a row.  These graduate programs give students the opportunity to earn a graduate degree while also participating in the Peace Corps.   Read more in the press release from the Peace Corps and learn about our programs.

Tech Today has also written an article with some great quotes from our faculty.


Funding Available for Leading Graduate Student Visits

Students who have applied for the highest degree offered by the program are eligible. Multiple requests may be submitted to utilize the $1,000 any time prior to June 1. Special consideration will be given to requests that contribute to meeting the University’s strategic goal of attracting and supporting a world-class and diverse student population.
