Willamette full-time MBA becomes a Peace Corps Fellow/USA program

Atkinson Graduate School of Management (AGSM) is partnering with the Peace Corps through the Fellows/USA program, allowing returned Peace Corps volunteers to receive financial assistance as they earn an MBA at Willamette.

"Willamette University is an outstanding new member of the Fellows/USA family," Peace Corps Director Aaron S. Williams said. "Many of our returned Peace Corps volunteers seek to apply the experiences they have learned abroad to business settings in the U.S., and the Willamette MBA program will allow Peace Corps Fellows to expand their professional skill-sets."

AGSM's is the only MBA program in the Pacific Northwest to participate in the Fellows program.

Peace Corps fellows in the full-time MBA program at Atkinson will receive a minimum of $5,000 in scholarship assistance and will be eligible for merit-based awards that may cover the full tuition. The fellows will also participate in Willamette's PACE (Practical Applications for Careers and Enterprises) program that partners student teams with local public and nonprofit entities.
