Georgetown's McDonough School of Business has been selected as the 18th business school to join the Paul D. Coverdell Fellowship Program. Established in 1985, this fellowship offers returned Peace Corps volunteers admitted to full-time MBA programs a minimum of $10,000 in tuition scholarship funding per year, as well as the ability to apply for graduate assistantships.

As part of the program, fellows will complete internships in underserved American communities, allowing them to bring home and expand upon the skills they learned as Peace Corps volunteers.

Georgetown McDonough will also waive the application fee for all returned Peace Corps volunteers. In the school's optional essay, eligible volunteers should note that they would like to be considered for the Paul D. Coverdell Fellowship.

“Georgetown University has a longstanding commitment to being men and women for others, as well as understanding the intricacies of different cultures around the world,” said David A. Thomas, dean of Georgetown McDonough. “By joining the Coverdell Fellows Program, we can reward incoming MBAs who already have the global mindset and value for serving society that we teach in our programs.”
