In acknowledgement of the extraordinary circumstances affecting U.S.  Peace Corps volunteers (PCVs) called back from international placements because of concerns over the spread of COVID-19, and the related suspension of the Fulbright Program and recall of U.S. student grantees abroad, Tulane University is announcing a special initiative to make graduate study more accessible to these talented Americans whose programs have been disrupted.


As a university with a strong tradition of public service and a profound commitment to global studies, Tulane appreciates and celebrates the commitment and leadership of PCVs and Fulbright grantees. In recognition of these traits and in response to unforeseen displacements, we extend a unique opportunity to pursue graduate degrees with a significant scholarship guarantee beginning in summer 2020, fall 2020 or spring 2021.


This initiative features the following commitments:

  • An expedited admission process for returning PCVs and Fulbright grantees– applications for summer and fall will be reviewed and decisions rendered within 10 business days of submission of all requested application materials
  • A tuition scholarship of at least 25% toward the entire degree program. In many cases, this scholarship may be combined with other Tulane fellowships yielding much higher discounts (in dialogue with the particular program) including full tuition plus stipend in Ph.D. programs for some of our degree programs.

Participating Tulane programs are located both on our campus in New Orleans and through online/remote programs.


The School of Architecture has several graduate degrees available through this opportunity, including the following, which may be of particular interest to Peace Corps volunteers and returning Fulbright students:
