To take advantage of Coverdell Fellows Program scholarship dollars, a student's project or research must be directly in line with the Program's second goal, which is to serve marginalized communities in the United States.
The Community Economic Development (CED) program is offered online only. The International Specialization is designed for practice in the developing world and management careers in government.
CED students are working professionals who take two courses over six semesters online. This allows them to continue working while going to school. Participants are required to plan and implement a CED project in their home communities, for their master's thesis. Typically, the project is linked to their areas of interest or employment. CED students may earn specializations in international CED.
Bachelor's degree, two years work experience in CED or related field, computer literacy, e-mail and Internet access, complete application, transcripts, reference letters, application fee and professional resume.
