Several Blacks Awarded Charlie Rangel Fellowships


WASHINGTON - The Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Program has awarded 15 graduate fellowships for students seeking careers in the foreign service.

Winners receive up to $34,000 a year to complete a master’s degree program in international affairs or related fields.
