Interim update on status of 2015 Peace Corps applications

 

In 2014, the Peace Corps modified its application process to make it more efficient. The first full year of the new process was 2015. The fiscal year for Peace Corps ends on September 30. The applications received during 2015 could still be in the “pipeline” on the September 30th fiscal deadline. So the following statistics are just a snapshot of the status of these applications as of that date. I made a Freedom of Information request to receive these statistics.

I will submit a new request for further information asking about the final determination of all the applicants received during 2015, specifically, how many invitations were finally issued to those who had submitted applications in 2015 and of those, how many accepted. Finally, I will ask how many host country requests could not be filled because Peace Corps did not have funding for those Volunteer positions.

Here are the statistics, as of September 30, 2015

APP: number of candidates who reached the status of application submitted=22,137

HHF: number of candidates who reached the status of Health History Form submitted =19,814

INT: number of candidates who reached the status of interviewed =8140

INV: number of candidates who reached the status of invitation issued =6013

EOD: number of candidates who reached the status of Enter On Duty (EOD)=1627
