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.

In addition, fellows work at an internship in Washington, usually for a congressional representative, before starting graduate school and a second internship at a U.S. embassy abroad between their first and second year of graduate study.

The program is designed to increase diversity in the foreign service, but fellowships are open to students of any race.

The program is administered jointly by Howard University and the U.S. Department of State.

Among the winners of 2011 fellowships are several African Americans including Lekisha Gunn of the University of Alabama, Calvin Hayes from Florida A&M University, and Leshawna Johnson of Columbia University.
