Global Scholars Program

The Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine has had a long connection and affiliation with the United States Peace Corps. The school was proud to partner with the Master's International Program for three decades, which was phased out in the Fall of 2016. In continuing with the tradition and commitment to global health at Tulane, the MI program has been reestablished as the Global Scholars Program.

Leaders in Global Public Health

The Global Scholars Program will strengthen students’ readiness to be global health professionals by providing career development, cultural and social awareness and technical skills through a seminar-type program. Through alumni networking, community service, partnerships with international organizations for internships, and mentorship from RPCVs, faculty and staff, Global Scholars will develop valuable skills for their international work.

We are proud to host a continuously growing and thriving community of Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV) faculty, staff, and students, and we are proud to be able to offer the Paul D. Coverdell Fellowship Program to the roster of Peace Corps activities offered at Tulane.
