Peace Corps or ACTION Programs

Applies only to Federal Perkins Loans.

This type of partial cancellation is for service as a Peace Corps volunteer or a volunteer under the Domestic Volunteer Service Act (ACTION programs). Service in volunteer programs other than Peace Corps or ACTION is not eligible for this type of partial cancellation.

For each year that a borrower receives partial cancellation for volunteer service in the Peace Corps or ACTION programs, he/she is considered to have also used one year of military/ACTION deferment.
