Scholarships for Returned U.S. Peace Corps Volunteers and Fulbright Student Grantees
The School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine is proud to participate in Tulane University’s special initiative to make graduate study more accessible to U.S. Peace Corps volunteers (PCVs) and Fulbright student grantees called back from international placements because of COVID-19.
The School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine is offering tuition scholarships between 25 and 50 percent of the entire cost of its graduate degree programs to returning Peace Corps volunteers and Fulbright student grantees. In some cases, these scholarships may be combined with other Tulane scholarships resulting in greater financial support, including full tuition plus stipends for some PhD programs. This significant scholarship initiative is being offered for fall 2020 and spring 2021 entrants.
This initiative also features expedited admission for returning PCVs and Fulbright student grantees: applications for fall 2020 will be reviewed and decisions rendered within 10 business days of submission of all requested application materials. No separate application is required, however, as part of the application process, PCV’s are asked to provide a copy of their “Description of Service” and Fulbright student grantees their “Terms and Conditions” or “Certificate of Completion.” For master’s degree applicants, the GRE is waived for fall 2020 entrants. Master’s degree applicants may also request that their application be reviewed without letters of recommendation.
Please note applications for Spring 2021 will open in the late summer. Award amounts depend on applicant qualifications. Email Ian Shirt for more information.
