The Rangel Graduate Fellowship Program welcomes applications from young people interested in careers in international service. For those who want to become Foreign Service Officers in the U.S. Department of State, the Rangel Graduate Fellowship Program provides benefits of up to $90,000 over two years toward a two-year master’s degree, and arranges internships on Capitol Hill and at U.S. embassies. Fellows can use the fellowship to attend two-year master’s programs in U.S. institutions to study any area of relevance to the Foreign Service, including international relations, public policy, public administration, languages, or business administration.

Applicants must be college seniors or graduates looking to start two-year graduate programs in fall 2014, must have GPAs of at least 3.2, and must be U.S. citizens. The program welcomes any undergraduate major and encourages applications from members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service and those with financial need. Deadlne information and application materials can be found here. The Program is funded by the U.S. Department of State and managed by Howard University.
