Come learn about the following Foreign Service fellowships.

  • The Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Program offers graduate fellowships to outstanding college seniors and graduates who want to join the Foreign Service.  These fellowships help finance two-year graduate programs, provide paid internships, and facilitate entry into the Foreign Service. The program also accepts 15-20 undergraduates to participate in the six-week Summer Enrichment Program that prepares students for careers in international affairs. Both programs seek applicants with a strong academic background, a commitment to service, and an interest in making a difference in the world.  For more information, visit
