Simon Partners with Teach For America and the Peace Corps

By: Tonya

Simon has recently signed on with the Peace Corps as part of their Fellows/U.S.A. program and with Teach For America as one of their graduate business school partners

As part of the Fellows/U.S.A. program, returning Peace Corps volunteers will receive up to $10,000 a year towards tuition to study at the Simon School.  Our Dean, Mark Zupan, sees this as a "win-win," stating that the "volunteers who have given of themselves have earned a break in tuition, and they will bring their wide ranging experiences and leadership skills to our School."

Similarly, the Teach For America partnership offers alumni of the organization a $10,000 annual scholarship to attend Simon.  In addition, a two-year deferral option exists for students who are admitted prior to their corps experience.  "Our recent success in placing younger MBA graduates has exceeded our expectations, and Teach For America alumni will contribute to this positive momentum," says Greg MacDonald, Executive Director of Admissions and Administration.

We are so pleased to announce these two partnerships and look forward to working with the corps and alumni of both organizations.
