Paul D. Coverdell Peace Corps Fellowship

The Paul D. Coverdell Peace Corp Fellowship was instituted to honor those who have served in the Peace Corps and who wish gain employment in the nonprofit sector after leaving the Corps. One fellowship is awarded per academic year to the candidate who shows outstanding academic performance, a strong commitment to a career in the nonprofit sector and who demonstrates high potential for leadership. The amount of the fellowship is $10,500, or approximately 25 percent of tuition to the MNA program. Applicants are not precluded from applying for other MNA merit-based scholarships and financial assistance.
