The Sanford School of Public Policy is proud to partner with the U.S. Peace Corps to offer the Paul D. Coverdell Fellowship to Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) pursuing graduate studies in the U.S. The fellowship combines financial assistance with service to the local community. All fellows complete internships in underserved American communities, allowing them to bring home, and expand upon, the skills they learned as volunteers.
Hear from our RPCV alumni about why they chose Sanford and how it led them to where they are today.
RPCVs are eligible to apply to either the Master of Public Policy program or the Master of International Development Policy program. For two-year students, the fellowship is a minimum of $14,000 per year, through a combination of a tuition fellowship and payment for community service, teaching, research, or graduate assistantship.
