Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Fellowship Program
The Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Fellowship Program seeks to attract outstanding young people who have an interest in pursuing a career in the Foreign Service of the U. S. Department of State. Graduating seniors and recent graduates with strong academic records are encouraged to apply. Consideration will be given to qualified applicants who, in addition to outstanding leadership skills and academic achievement, demonstrate financial need. The Rangel award consists of fellowships towards tuition, and a stipend toward completion of a two-year master’s degree. At the conclusion of two years of study, the Rangel Fellow is expected to obtain a degree in international affairs or a related subject (such as public administration, public policy, business administration, foreign languages, economics, political science, communications) at a graduate or professional school approved by the Ralph J. Bunche International Affairs Center. Rangel Fellows will participate in two internships. The first, an internship working on international issues for Members of Congress in Washington, D.C., will occur in the summer after being selected and before the first year of graduate study. The second will be an overseas internship in a U. S. Embassy or Consulate that takes place during the summer between the first and second years of graduate study. The Program provides support of up to $10,000 per summer. Visit the Fellow Obligation page to learn more about the obligations that Rangel Fellows assume when they accept the fellowship.
