The Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Program is now accepting applications for the 2019 Rangel International Affairs Summer Enrichment Program!

The Rangel International Affairs Summer Enrichment Program is a six-week program at Howard University that helps prepare undergraduate students for careers in international affairs. Students learn about different career paths, both inside and outside of government, with an emphasis on careers in the U.S. Department of State, and they hone professional skills needed to be competitive for and succeed in careers of international service. The program includes two for-credit academic courses, a professional writing seminar, visits and meetings with foreign affairs professionals in a wide range of government and non-governmental organizations, and professional development activities. The program will run from mid-June until late July, and it pays for tuition, room, board, and transportation and provides a stipend. The program encourages the application of members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service, women and those with financial need.  Applicants with any undergraduate major are welcome to apply.
