Dear PC Friends:
Where can parents and families and friends of Peace Corps Volunteers most
effectively advocate and lobby for the inclusion of provisions in pending
and future Peace Corps or Student Loan legislation to forgive some (or all)
of accumulated Federal Student Loans for undergraduate college educations of
PCV's? We have a daughter that has just re-upped for a third year in PC

Great question! Not sure a 2-year stint in the Corps merits forgiveness for all student loans--deferral, yes, but not forgiveness (probably fall back on tax payers)
