Global Scholars Program

You're pursuing your master's degree in a public health field. You're interested in international service. Perhaps the Peace Corps is a good next step in your professional journey!

Tulane SPHTM has a long affiliation with the Peace Corps. Hundreds of graduates have gone on to pursue Peace Corps service where they have been able to directly use the skills learned in the classroom to assist communities around the globe. The school's new Global Scholars program will help prepare students for Peace Corps service through monthly seminars, social and community service events, and networking with the Louisiana Peace Corps Association (LPCA). Participants will gain insight from the experiences of the many Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCV) at SPHTM, including the Coverdell Fellows, the Peace Corps Programs coordinator, and many faculty and staff. 

This new program is not limited to students going into Peace Corps. Students pursuing other international work and service opportunities are also welcome to participate as Global Scholars.
