At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Howard University, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of State, invites outstanding individuals interested in international affairs and careers in the U.S. Foreign Service to apply for the 2011 Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Graduate Fellowship. Graduating seniors and recent college graduates with strong academic records and an interest in international affairs are encouraged to apply. The Rangel Program encourages the application of members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service and those with financial need. Selected fellows will receive support for graduate school and will enter into one of the most exciting and rewarding careers available. We expect to provide 20 fellowships in 2011.

Program Benefits:
  • An orientation to the Program and the Foreign Service at Howard University in Washington, D.C.
  • Two summer internships, one on Capitol Hill the summer after selection and one overseas at a U.S. embassy during the summer between the first and second years of graduate school.
  • Up to $45,000 annually toward tuition, fees and living expenses for a two-year master’s degree in international affairs, public administration or another area relevant to the work of the Foreign Service, as well as toward stipends, transportation and living expenses for the above internships.
  • Mentoring from a Foreign Service Officer throughout the duration of the fellowship.
  • Employment in the State Department Foreign Service for those who successfully complete the program and Foreign Service entry requirements, with a contractual agreement committing each Rangel Fellow to a minimum of three years of service as a Foreign Service Officer.
Application Deadline January 21, 2011.
