The University of Notre Dame’s Eck Institute for Global Health is partnering with the Peace Corps to offer financial help to returned Peace Corps Volunteers. The joint program will provide an annual scholarship of $12,000 to qualifying returned Peace Corps Volunteer accepted into the Master of Science in Global Health program beginning Fall 2015. 

The partnership is part of the Peace Corps Paul D. Coverdell Fellows program that offers financial benefits such as scholarships, reduced tuition, and university credit in graduate degree programs at more than 90 participating colleges and universities. In addition to their academic studies, Coverdell Fellows participants apply the experience they acquired as volunteers abroad to programs that benefit underserved United States communities.
