Heller Announces Scholarship for Returned Peace Corps Volunteers

February 01, 2012

The Heller School has long demonstrated its commitment to the Peace Corps by awarding substantial scholarships through our Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program, which guarantees that all accepted returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCV) will receive a $10,000 scholarship for each year of full-time study. Now Heller is taking the commitment one step further by announcing a new full tuition scholarship to be awarded to one RPCV with a demonstrated commitment to effective international health policy and management.

This scholarship is for the MS in international Health Policy and Management only. Bringing together planners and implementers, the Heller MS program facilitates shared learning to translate research into policy and action. Students learn how to make the best use of policy analysis to determine which plans work, which are the most cost-effective and which are sensitive to a country’s values and culture. 

The winner of this scholarship will receive a full tuition scholarship for the 2012-2013 academic year. The deadline to apply is March 30, 2012. To learn more about all of Heller's degree programs and their generous scholarship opportunities, please visit http://heller.brandeis.edu/ or email helleradmissions@brandeis.edu
