A Peace Corps program that allows you to serve overseas and pursue a Master's degree from a US institution (list of partner universities). Master's International (MI) has made the truly unique opportunity of complementing a master's degree with overseas service available in a variety of fields at over 80 academic institutions nationwide. Established in 1987, Master's International addresses the first goal of the Peace Corps: to help the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women.

Many of the partner schools offer research or teaching assistantships, scholarships, or tuition waivers to Volunteers while serving in the Peace Corps—and all offer credit for service. The schools also dedicate talented faculty and staff members, who serve as ongoing resources throughout your academic and overseas experiences.
