Peace Corps Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program

The Eck Institute for Global Health (EIGH) partners with the Peace Corps to offer financial help to Returned and Evacuated Peace Corps Volunteers.

The partnership is part of the Peace Corps Paul D. Coverdell Fellows program, which offers financial benefits such as scholarships, reduced tuition, and university credit in graduate degree programs at more than 90 participating colleges and universities.


Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and Evacuated Peace Corps Volunteers accepted into the Master of Science in Global Health program are eligible for funding. 


The joint program provides an annual scholarship of 25% of the tuition to qualifying returned Peace Corps Volunteers.
