To Applicants for Fall 2013-14
Please review instructions and the form carefully before you begin responding.
The PCCF priority deadline was Jan. 15, and we continued to accept applications through March 1. Applications submitted after March 1 should be for the following academic year (2014-15).
HOW MANY FELLOWS DO WE TAKE?
The number of new Fellows each year depends on the number of graduates each year and available funding. We invite 15-24 incoming fellows to join our program each year from 75+ applicants.
WHEN SHOULD I APPLY?
Apply to the Fellows program 9-12 months before you plan to begin your academic program. If you have not yet served in Peace Corps, it is helpful to conduct your research on schools before you go. However, we do not accept applications until the year prior to commencing study.
ACADEMIC APPLICATION AND FELLOWS APPLICATION
The academic application is a separate process from the Fellow's application. Each academic unit sets its own deadlines found on the departmental website. Though the Graduate College accepts academic applications through May, the academic department deadline takes precedence. There is an advantage to applying early.
We do not waive the academic application fee for Peace Corps Coverdell Fellow applicants.
WHEN WILL I HEAR FROM PC FELLOWS?
We begin reviewing application in January. We begin to make offers electronically, beginning in March, and may make another round of offers after April 15, sometimes as late as May or June until the class is filled. Offers are contingent upon acceptance in your academic program. We will wait to hear from the academic unit that an applicant is recommended for admission before making an offer. If you do not hear from us by the end of June, you may contact us for application status information.
Let Us Hear From You
Let the academic Graduate Coordinator or Admissions Coordinator, and the UA PC Fellows program know that you are applying for admission and wish to be considered for the UA Peace Corps Coverdell Fellows Program.
ARE YOU PLANNING A VISIT?
We encourage you to visit the UA. Please contact Holly (520-626-2292 or email@example.com) to set up an appointment with us. We can provide information on lodging and PCF events, such as Peace Corps Fair or service projects. Modest lodging near campus is available at the Roadrunner Hostel & Inn.
