Shriver Peaceworker Program



Are you a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer who is passionate about making a difference?

Are you interested in translating your service abroad into engaged service-learning experiences here in Baltimore?

Are you ready to join an engaged community of social change leaders? 


Each year on a competitive basis the Shriver Peaceworker Program invites 6-10 Returned Peace Corps Volunteers to participate in a rigorous, two year social change leadership program integrating three key components:

  • full-time graduate study in diverse disciplines
  • part-time service placement with community partner organizations addressing diverse social needs. Partner organizations may be non-profits, government agencies, or campus-based service-learning placements
  • a year round ethical reflection curriculum including seminars, retreats, and events.

Prospective applicants should read through the website to learn more about the program, review the FAQs, and feel free to reach out with any questions they may have that are not answered here on the site.

Applications are due by early January. More info about the application is available on the “Apply” page. Fellowships are awarded annually, and the Peaceworker Program year begins in late-July.
