Learn how the Peace Corps community
- Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program
The Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program works with more than 50 American universities that offer financial assistance to returned Peace Corps Volunteers. As a Fellow, you can pursue a master’s degree, or even a doctorate, in a wide variety of subject areas. You’ll also complete a professional, degree-related internship in an underserved American community using the knowledge and skills you developed abroad to improve people's lives here at home.
Through its collaboration with universities, community organizations, public school systems, and program funders, the Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program advances the Peace Corps' third goal, "to help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans."
