The Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program (formerly known as Fellows/USA) is a graduate fellowship program that offers financial assistance to returned Peace Corps Volunteers. Fellows pursue a degree in one of the many fields offered along with a degree-related internship in an underserved American community.

AUNE is a participating University. Peace Corps fellows are invited to apply to any Antioch University New England master’s program.

Incoming graduate students who have completed a Peace Corps experience are eligible to apply for a scholarship equal to 25% of tuition. This scholarship, if awarded, will be effective at the time of admission and will continue for the student’s second year as long as satisfactory academic progress is maintained. Contact Laura Andrews, Director of Admissions, for more information.
