The Selection Division of the Peace Corps is responsible for initially screening applicants and then-on the basis of the applicants' questionnaires, placement-test results, letters of reference, and academic records-for matching applicants to specific programs. Invitations to enter training are given to those who have been matched to assignments. During training the selection process continues. Selection of persons for volunteer service overseas differs importantly from more familiar selection procedures for positions in business, industry, government, or academia. To date, the Selection Division has processed 160,000 applications. Approximately 20,000 applicants have become Volunteers.
