The Rangel International Affairs Graduate Fellowship, run by Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Program at Howard Univeristy, welcomes applications from young people interested in careers of international service. The Fellowship Program provides benefits valued at up to $90,000 over two years toward a two-year master's degree, arranges internships on Capitol Hill and at U.S. embassies, and provides professional development and support activities for those who want to become Foreign Services Officers in the U.S. Department of State. Fellows may use the fellowship to attend a two-year master's program in a U.S. institution to study an area of relevance to the Foreign Service, including international relations, public policy, public administration, languages, or business administration. Upon successful completion of the two-year fellowship, Fellows enter the Foreign Service of the U.S. Department of State.
Applicants for the 2015 Rangel International Affairs Graduate Fellowship must be college seniors or graduates looking to start two-year graduate programs in fall 2015, have GPAs of at least 3.2, and be U.S. citizens. The program welcomes applications from those with any undergraduate major and encourages applications from members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service and those with financial need.
Information and application materials are at the Fellowship page. The Program is funded by the U.S. Department of State and managed by Howard University.
