Peace Corps Program

“As a RPCV I was looking for an MBA program that incorporated my interest in sustainable business – I found that at Northern Arizona University. The Peace Corps Coverdell Fellow graduate assistantship provides me the opportunity to work with a local non-profit organization that is dedicated to improving local community businesses. I would recommend Northern Arizona University’s MBA program to everyone.”  Gahtlin Banks, RPCV-Belize 05/08, MBA Candidate-Class of 2013.

The Northern Arizona University MBA program is proud to partner with the Peace Corps by participating in the Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program. Founded in 1985 at Teachers College, Columbia University (and formerly known as Fellows/USA), the Coverdell Fellows Program is now a network of partnerships between the Peace Corps and more than 90 universities across the country. Competitively selected Coverdell Fellows undertake service internships in high-need American communities and receive financial aid while working toward their graduate degrees. Returned Peace Corps Volunteers may apply to enroll in a Coverdell Fellowship at NAU at any time after successfully completing Peace Corps service.

In addition to the Paul Coverdell Program, the application fee for the MBA program is waived for all RPCV's.  Please contact us for details.
