The International Scholars Program partnered with Peace Corps Prep is a dynamic program pair open to all UF students. Completing the International Scholars Program earns students a global medallion to wear at graduation as well as a digital badge and a certificate of completion from the University of Florida International Center. When students co-enroll in Peace Corps Prep they can earn a certificate of recognition from Peace Corps. Peace Corps Prep builds intercultural competencies, hands-on experience, and transferable skills—all of which provide a competitive edge if students choose to pursue Peace Corps service after graduation. A Peace Corps Prep certificate shows that students have earned skills that are not only required to be a successful Peace Corps volunteer but are also valuable and transferable to a wide variety of professions.
For CALS students these programs offer the opportunity to enhance your area of study with a global perspective and an experiential service component in a sector that matches your interest. Peace Corps Prep allows students to concentrate in 1 of 6 sectors which include Youth in Development, Agriculture, and Environment. Join us to find out more about how the International Scholars Program and Peace Corps Prep can work together to help you gain skills in your chosen field while giving back to the community.
