Rangel, Charles B. International Affairs Graduate Fellowship

The Rangel Graduate Fellowship is a program that aims to attract and prepare outstanding young people for careers in the Foreign Service in which they can help formulate, represent and implement U.S. foreign policy.

Each year, the Rangel Program selects 30 outstanding Rangel Fellows and helps support them through two years of graduate study, internships and professional development activities, and entry into the Foreign Service. This program encourages the application of members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service and those with financial need.

Fellows who successfully complete the program and Foreign Service entry requirements will receive appointments as Foreign Service Officers.

Recipients receive a $47,500 fellowship each year, plus summer internships and mentoring.
