US Peace Corps Coverdell Fellowship for Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs)

Peace Corps Logo

You have served two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer and had experiences of a lifetime that no one can take away from you. Why not go the extra step and enhance those practical experiences with a Master's degree? Kennesaw State University's Master of Science in International Policy Management provides an excellent opportunity for you to continuing your studies.

As is indicated at the Peace Corps website, for many Peace Corps Coverdell Fellows, this is an opportunity to combine academic and professional endeavors with your desire to work in underserved communities. At the same time, it allows the Fellow to reintegrate into a community and do something meaningful after his or her experience abroad.

Through the Peace Corps Coverdell Fellows Program at KSU you will receive a tuition waiver and stipend for fall and spring semesters. The program offers Graduate Research Assistantships to Peace Corps Fellows for up to four academic semesters in this degree program.

If you would like more information, please visit Peace Corps Coverdell Fellows Program.
