Graduate Fellowship Program School Partners

Rangel Fellows can use their fellowships to attend any graduate program at a U.S. university that is approved by the Rangel Program. Rangel Fellows currently attend graduate programs around the country. However, there are a number of graduate programs that have agreed in advance to provide financial assistance, in addition to the $24,000 for tuition and $18,000 for a stipend that the Rangel Program awards each year. Because the universities themselves provide these benefits, students should work directly with the key contact points at each university to confirm all aspects of this assistance. The universities recommend that applicants include the fact that they are applying for the Rangel Fellowship in their application. Rangel Fellows are not limited to attending these programs, and other universities provide assistance to Rangel Fellows on a case-by-case basis.

Potential applicants can request a list of the universities and their offers by e-mailing the Rangel Program at
