B. Rangel International Affairs Program
Deadline: January 18, 2013
Notes: This is a competitive award funded by the U.S. Department of State and administered by the Ralph J. Bunche Center at Howard University. Also, each
Rangel Fellow who obtains a master’s degree is committed
to a minimum of three years of service in an appointment as a
Foreign Service Officer.
Applicants must be US citizens, and should demonstrate outstanding
leadership skills, academic excellence, and financial need. Candidates
must have at least a 3.2/4.0 GPA, and be seniors or a professional who has earned an undergraduate degree by June 2011.
The program provides awards annually of up to $90,000 for two years of graduate study in international affairs or a related subject such as economics, history, business administration, foreign languages, communication, public administration or international affairs. The fellowship also offers support for internships in Congress and overseas, an enrichment study at Howard University in Washington, D.C., and eventual appointment to the U.S. Foreign Service.
Rangel fellows will participate in two internships. The first, a domestic internship on Capitol Hill, will occur in the summer before the Fellow begins the master’s program. The second will be an overseas internship in a US embassy which takes place during the summer between the first and second years of graduate study.
