Explore Our Peace Corps Opportunities


Thank you for your interest in our MI program.

Unfortunately Peace Corps is closing the MI program at all universities.  This fall, 2016, is the last quarter that we are able to accept any new students into the program.  They are phasing it out over the next couple of years.
We would still encourage you to still apply for our MPH program, we plan to offer additional global health practicum opportunities going forward.  

Sincerely, LLUSPH Peace Corps Program



Coverdell Fellows Program @ LLUSPH

Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program

Students in the Coverdell Fellows program are returned Peace Corps volunteers who receive six units of tuition waiver in exchange for five to eight hours a week of local service in an area of designated need. In addition, the school grants full academic credit for the field practicum portion of the Master of Public Health degree, recognizing the value of the Peace Corps experience.

Coverdell Fellows at Loma Linda University have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of community outreach programs. Some have served with the LLU Community Action Partners (CAPS) in the Community Mothers Connection Program, Center for Health Disparities, and Office of Public Health Practice, United Way, and as teaching assistants for an integrated community development class.

Students in the Coverdell Fellows program may select from the following majors:

  • Environmental and Occupational Health
  • Global Health
  • Health Policy and Management
  • Health Education and Promotion
  • Nutrition

To be eligible for admission, you must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university and a GPA of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale. All applicants must submit scores of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or equivalent graduate school entrance examination and demonstrate college-level conceptualization and writing skills.
