Rangel International Affairs Graduate Fellowship

We received notification that the 2014 Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Graduate Fellowship competition is officially opened.

The Fellowship welcomes applications from young people interested in careers of international service.  The Rangel Graduate 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 mentoring and professional development activities for those who want to become Foreign Service 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 must be college seniors or graduates looking to start two-year graduate programs in fall 2014, 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 for both programs are at www.rangelprogram.orgThe Rangel application deadline is January 17, 2014.  The Program is funded by the U.S. Department of State and managed by Howard University.
