The Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Summer Enrichment Program is a six-week summer program designed to provide undergraduate students with a deeper appreciation of current issues and trends in international affairs, a greater understanding of career opportunities in international affairs, and the enhanced knowledge and skills to pursue such careers. The Program usually selects 15-20 participants (known as “Rangel Scholars”) each year from universities throughout the United States. Students live at Howard University, attend classes, and participate in a variety of programs with foreign affairs professionals at Howard and at diverse locations around Washington, DC.
Applicants must be full-time undergraduate students, with at least sophomore status on the date of the application deadline, have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.2 on a 4.0 scale at the time of application, and be U.S. citizens.
The Program covers the costs for tuition, travel, housing, and two meals per day. It also provides a stipend of $3,200.
