Peace Corps Programs
Peace Corps Master's International (PCMI)
The Peace Corps is retiring its Master’s International graduate school program. Students beginning PCMI by fall 2016 will still be able to participate. If you are interested, please apply to the Institute before July 10, our final deadline for a fall 2016 start.
The Peace Corps Master’s International (PCMI) program is for students interested in combining graduate work at the Institute with Peace Corps service.
Paul D. Coverdell Fellows
Already served in the Peace Corps? The Paul D. Coverdell Fellows program is for Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) who want to work in underserved communities in America while receiving financial assistance to attend the Institute.
Our Peace Corps Connection
Many students, faculty, and staff are Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs). Dr. Beryl Levinger, Program Chair of the Master of Public Administration (MPA) and Master's in International Policy and Development programs, was the founder of the Fellows Program in 1985.
