About this Fellowship
This summer program is designed for undergraduates interested in exploring a career in the Foreign Service.
This six-week program provides undergraduate students with a deeper appreciation of current issues and trends in international affairs, a greater understanding of career opportunities in international affairs, and the enhanced knowledge and skills to pursue such careers. Students live at Howard University, attend classes, participate in a variety of programs with foreign affairs professionals at Howard and at diverse locations around Washington, DC. The Rangel Program introduces the participants to a wide range of government and non-government professionals who work on global issues and also arranges visits to various governmental and non-governmental institutions involved in international affairs. In addition, the Program helps students explore graduate school and professional options in international affairs.
This program encourages the application of members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service, women, and those with financial need.
The Rangel Program provides tuition, housing, travel, and two meals a day for six weeks, plus a stipend of $3,300.
