The University of Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs is partnering with the Peace Corps to establish a new Paul D. Coverdell Fellows program for returned volunteers pursuing the Keough School’s new Master of Global Affairs degree.
Peace Corps volunteers selected as Coverdell Fellows will receive a full-tuition scholarship, health insurance and a living stipend each year of the two-year MGA program.
The Keough School joins the Mendoza College of Business and the Eck Institute for Global Health as Coverdell Fellows partner programs at Notre Dame.
Coverdell Fellows complete internships in underserved American communities, bringing home and expanding skills they learned as Peace Corps volunteers — as well as applying their classroom learning in a professional setting. They gain valuable, hands-on experience that makes them more competitive in the job market while furthering the Peace Corps mission, especially its commitment to strengthening Americans’ understanding of the world and its people.
