Graduate Fellowship Program
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.  Beginning in 2015 , the Rangel Program will select 30 outstanding Rangel Fellows annually in a highly competitive nationwide process 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, one of the most exciting and rewarding careers available.

Rangel Fellows are committed to serving their country and promoting positive change globally.  Individuals who have successfully completed the Rangel Program are now making a difference in countries throughout the world, including Colombia, Mexico, Panama, Venezuela, South Africa, Nigeria, Angola, China, Korea, Bangladesh, Spain and Ireland.

2006 Rangel Fellow - Foreign Service Officer en route to Pretoria, South Africa After graduating from Cornell University, working for the government was the last thing on Brandon Jackson's mind. But, while serving as a Fulbright Scholar in Korea, a Foreign Service Officer gave a talk about the U.S. Foreign Service that changed his life forever. "The Foreign Service is the career that I always dreamed of but never really knew existed," Brandon said. "The work is exciting and rewarding – with endless possibilities to make a difference in people's lives."
