Opportunities for Volunteers

Valparaiso University's Graduate School, in partnership with Lutheran Volunteer Corps,  Lutheran Church Missouri Synod World Mission, and Evangelical Lutheran Church of America Global Mission, will allow each program volunteer with a bachelor’s degree and who have completed at least one year of service to earn up to 6 credits of internship, independent study, or elective credit towards select Valparaiso University graduate programs.

Volunteers enrolling at Valparaiso University's Graduate School will also be awarded scholarships equal to the amount of credit given for their volunteer service: up to $3,360 for MA, MS, and MEd programs, up to $1,905 for Master’s or Doctorate Nursing programs, and up to $4,260 for the MBA program.

Students will also have the opportunity to be selected as a Graduate Intern or receive other assistantship support in order to earn supplemental income.

To learn more about this benefit, including the specific programs that offer credit and commensurate scholarship awards, please contact Valparaiso University’s Graduate School at 1-800-821-7685 or Graduate.School@valpo.edu.

Located 50 miles from Chicago, Valparaiso University is one of the nation’s oldest and premiere Lutheran institutions of higher education, consistently ranked among the best master’s level universities in the Midwest in overall quality, cost for value, and “up and coming” status.
