UAF and Peace Corps Partnerships
The University of Alaska Fairbanks and the Peace Corps have cooperative agreements for the Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program.
Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program offers returned Volunteers scholarships or reduced tuition, stipends, and internships at more than 50 participating campuses in a variety of subject areas, combining graduate study with substantive, degree-related internships that help meet the needs of underserved American communities. Fellows teach in public schools, work in public health facilities, and contribute to community development projects at nonprofit organizations. Volunteers can apply for Fellows/USA any time after they complete their Peace Corps service.
