Peace Corps Coverdell Fellows Overview

The WNMU- Gallup Peace Corps Coverdell Fellows (PCCF)Program is designed for Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) who do not have an undergraduate teaching degree, but who have a desire and passion to teach.

In the WNMU-Gallup PCCF Program, Fellows find a full-time teaching position and take classes at night, online, or on the weekend to fulfill the proper New Mexico teaching certificate requirments.

Fellows gruadte after 3 years with a Masters in Teaching (MAT), and receive a Level 1 teaching certificate from the State of New Mexico.

Fellows are closely supported by WNMU-Gallup faculty as well as the cadre of current and former Fellows who live and work in the community. The program director, Scott Farver, is himself a former WNMU-Gallup Fellow, and he will work with you to ensure success in your classroom and at WNMU-Gallup.
