Shriver Scholarships Available

The following announcement was posted in the CRPCVA weekly newsletter.  The Columbia River Peace Corps Association is a very active group.  They present a museum display of the Peace Corps Experience around the Portland area. The formatting is copied from the newsletter.  Here is the link to their webpage: http://www.crpca.org

The link in the announcement should be a copy and paste if reading it here.  Many  of us may beyond Graduate School, but what a great way to honor Shriver and a wonderful opportunity to pass along.

Graduate Fellowship Opportunity with
Shriver Pieceworker Fellows Program

Hello RPCV’s! I am writing you from the Shriver Peaceworker Fellows Program in Baltimore, MD.  Peaceworker is a competitive graduate fellowship program exclusively for RPCVs, and our current recruitment season is open and accepting applications. Fellows complete fully funded masters degrees in any discipline while serving 20 hours per week with a nonprofit or government partner in Baltimore.  The program covers tuition, health insurance and a living stipend for the full two years of graduate school.

Each year we select a group of 6-8 fellows.  The program starts in late July 2016, and the application deadline is December 14, 2015.  The link to our website with information on applying is below. Last year’s incoming class included volunteers from: Guinea, Senegal, Indonesia, Nicaragua, China, Cameroon, and Togo. We’d love to add more to our list!
