The School of Business is strongly committed to building a diverse student body. To further this goal, we have developed Corporate Fellowships for our MA in Management program in an effort to reward high-achieving students from underrepresented groups. Fellows receive full tuition plus a generous stipend to help cover living expenses. They also receive personal mentoring from a high-level executive at a major corporation.
Past and present Corporate Fellowship sponsors have included: American Express, Cigna, ExxonMobil, Flow Companies, Frito-Lay, Hanesbrands, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Novartis, PepsiCo, Reynolds American, Steelcase, VF Corporation, Wells Fargo and Walmart.
Corporate Fellowships are limited to U.S. citizens. Decisions regarding the Corporate Fellowship award will be made by the Admissions Committee on a rolling basis. Corporate Fellowships are highly competitive.

The Paul D. Coverdell Fellows program at the Wake Forest School of Business offers Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) the chance to gain valuable hands-on business experience through our 10-month MA in Management program. The Coverdell Fellows program annually awards 50 percent tuition scholarships (valued at approximately $21,000) to two RPCVs of high merit, and will consider an additional full tuition scholarship for an RPCV of extraordinary merit. Consideration for other merit-based scholarships will be given to additional RPCV candidates based on the strength of their applications.
Peace Corps volunteers return with outstanding project management and adaptability skills. When you combine these skills with the technical business acumen, professional development and hands-on learning opportunities that you'll gain in the MA program, you'll be a strong candidate for rewarding jobs in the business, nonprofit and government sectors.
As an MA student, Coverdell Fellows will participate in a 144-hour internship with a local nonprofit organization working to address the needs of our community. Additionally, Fellows will work as graduate business consultants for a local business or nonprofit as part of their curriculum.
To apply as an RPCV for the Coverdell Fellows program at Wake Forest, you must have completed your undergraduate degree no more than four years prior to the April 1st application deadline and you must have limited or no significant work experience outside your service in the Peace Corps.
