Spotlight on Peace Corp Volunteers at UT

The College of Social Work welcomed the first of the Peace Corps Coverdell Fellows, Abby Borst, in the fall semester of 2015. This semester we are pleased to welcome Sadie Weiss to the Knoxville Campus MSSW program and Jami Hargrove to the Nashville Campus MSSW program.


The UT College of Social Work is one of a select group of partner schools in the Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program, a graduate fellowship program that offers financial assistance to returned Peace Corps Volunteers. All Coverdell students complete internships in underserved American communities,Tianna Bartoletta allowing them to bring home, and expand upon, the skills they learned as Peace Corps Volunteers.

Find out more about Sadie Weiss, Knoxville Campus, and Jami Hargrove, Nashville Campus, and how the Peace Corps helped shape their desire to enter the social work profession.
