Master’s in Community Development for Peace Corps Volunteers- Future Generations University


As a Peace Corps volunteer, you’ve already demonstrated your strong work ethic, commitment to community development, and dedication to pursuing a truly global learning experience. At Future Generations University, you can develop the skills you’ve acquired during your service even further.

Future Generations ascribes to many of the same values that are so important to the Peace Corps, particularly empowering local communities to create positive change. Because of this, we are a proud member of the Peace Corps Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program.

The Coverdell Fellows

The Peace Corps Coverdell Fellowship Program is specifically for U.S. students who are Returned (or returning) Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCV’s), Peace Corps Response (PCR) Volunteers, or Global Health Service Partnership (GHSP) Volunteers. It’s purpose is to enable every volunteer to get a Master of Arts in Applied Community Development at a reduced cost and to apply and expand skills learned as a Peace Corps volunteer to underserved communities in the U.S.

Future Generations University welcomes your drive and is eager to help you become a development practitioner who is fully prepared no matter where you go!
