Jesuit Volunteer Corps Service Scholarship

The Next Step in a Journey of Service

Watch our introduction video to learn about our scholarship for former Jesuit Volunteers, and how Georgetown’s biomedical master’s programs can help you build on your values and skills.

Biomedical Graduate Education fosters a culture of challenging our students to engage in the world and become people in the service of others, especially the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the community. These values constitute the core of Georgetown’s identity, binding members of the community across diverse backgrounds.

BGE is pleased to announce that we are an education partner with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, which “engages passionate young people in vital service within poor communities, fostering the growth of leaders committed to faith in action.”
