Jobs for program alumni
Two Coverdell Fellows have graduated from our program. John Teschner (2010) wrote a compelling essay "On Drones" for "The Iowa Review." After graduating, he was a successful grants manager for AchieveMpls, but now lives in Hawaii working on his own writing and as a freelance grants writer. Valerie Wayson (2012) currently teaches at the American University of Iraq-Sulaimani. Read her compelling essay "Fire" in "Cargo Literary Magazine," which takes place in Iraqi Kurdistan.
Fellows apply the same as all other applicants, but do need to provide verification that they have successfully completed their Peace Corps residency. Fellows should also include in their resume/CV any experience relevant to teaching/working with young people.
Our program is a traditional residential program, in keeping with GCSU's mission as the public liberal arts university for the University System of Georgia.
