Pursue Your Master's as a Coverdell Fellow

NYU Peace Corps Coverdell Fellowship Program

The NYU Peace Corps Coverdell Fellowship Program offers a select group of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers leadership development programming and financial support while pursuing a MA or MS degree. The fellowship will provide a 50% tuition scholarship, basic health insurance, and participation in leadership development programming overseen by the NYU Leadership Initiative.

You'll apply to a NYU Steinhardt MA or MS degree program as a full time student for the fall semester. Only RPCVs who have successfully completed their term of service by the start of the fall semester are eligible.

To be considered for the fellowship, your graduate application must be submitted by the program deadline date or January 15, whichever comes first.
