Why you should consider this program
The Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program is a graduate fellowship program that offers financial assistance to Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs). The Fellows Program allows RPCVs to bring home, and expand upon, the skills they learned as volunteers. These skills in adapting to new cultures, developing and managing projects, dealing with language barriers, and leveraging limited resources are very useful in the continuation of studies at Cornell and the development of a professional career after grad school.
