U.S. Department of State Foreign Service Fellowships Information Session

3:00 PM to 4:00 PM


The Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Program and the Thomas R. Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellowship, both funded by the U.S. Department of State, strive to attract and prepare outstanding young people for Foreign Service careers.  The programs desire to select members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the U.S. State Department, women, and those with financial need. Program benefits include mentoring financial support for graduate school (up to $96K), two summer internships, mentoring from a Foreign Service Office, and other professional development opportunities.

The USAID Donald M. Payne International Development Graduate Fellowship Program looks for outstanding individuals interested in pursuing a career in the Foreign Service of the U.S. Agency for International Development. Program benefits are nearly identical to the Rangel and Pickering fellowships, including significant financial support for graduate study, internships, and professional development opportunities.

Attend this information session to learn more about these opportunities, MU alumni who have received these awards, and how to apply.

If you can’t attend the session but want to learn more, make an appointment with Erik Potter on MU Connect or email fellowships@missouri.edu.

The session runs from 3–4 p.m. on Thursday, April 15, on Zoom. Register here.
