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.

Currently serving in his first post as a Cultural Affairs Officer in Bangladesh, Calvin Hayes is excited about pursuing a career that allows him to make an impact on the world.  He explains, “The Rangel Program and the Foreign Service give me the ability to represent my country while also showing the diversity of America abroad. I have a challenging yet rewarding opportunity to engage global audiences, provide critical resources to communities that need it the most, and implement programs that will have long-term impact.”
