2017 Rangel Scholars Selected

The Rangel Summer Enrichment Program provides undergraduates with the opportunity to enhance their skills, knowledge and understanding of U.S. foreign policy and international careers during a six-week summer program at Howard University.  The 2017 Rangel Scholars reflect the excellence and diversity that have characterized the program since its creation.  The current group includes individuals from 10 states and the District of Columbia; they attend 13 different undergraduate institutions throughout the United States that reflect a full range of academic experiences, including Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, Ivy League schools, large state universities, and smaller private schools.  The Scholars also represent significant racial and ethnic diversity.  Their languages include Arabic, Mandarin, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Vietnamese, German, Japanese, and Tamil.

The 2017 Summer Enrichment Program begins June 19 and goes through July 29, 2017.  The Program provides two courses and a seminar at Howard University that focus on enhancing knowledge and skills related to U.S. foreign policy, economics and writing.  In addition, Scholars are introduced to a wide range of government and non-government professionals who work on global issues and they also visit various institutions involved in international affairs.  The Program also helps students explore graduate school, scholarship, fellowship, internship and professional options in international affairs.  Please join us in welcoming the 2017 Rangel Scholars!
