Garric Buzzard, Rangel's program manager, will share the details of the Graduate Fellowship program and the upcoming deadlines.
Each year the program selects outstanding Rangel Fellows in a competitive nationwide process and supports them through two years of graduate study, internships, mentoring, and professional development activities. The program encourages applications from members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service, women, and those with financial need. Fellows who successfully complete the program and Foreign Service entry requirements will receive appointments as Foreign Service Officers.
The 2023 application deadline for Rangel Fellowship is Thursday September 22, 2022 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time. This information session is intended for incoming seniors, recent graduates and those with interest in another master’s degree. Incoming juniors interested in learning about the program are welcomed to attend.
