Opportunities For African Americans in The Foreign Service

The Rangel and Pickering fellowship programs are now taking applications

It’s that time of year again. The deadline is fast approaching for two programs designed to increase African American participation in the foreign service.  The Rangel and Pickering International Programs is accepting even more applicants this year.  My guest is Patricia Scroggs – Director of Dipolmatic Fellowships at Howard University

Two programs with two ways for African American students to jump start their careers and get paid while doing it.  Fellowship is a premier U.S. Department of State program created to attract diverse talent to its Foreign Service. The Fellowship seeks individuals who are interested in uniquely rewarding career of international service. Foreign Service Officers represent the United States in countries around the world by promoting human rights, assisting American citizens overseas, enhancing prosperity and development, deepening ties between the United States and people around the world, and supporting U.S. global values and interests.  www.pickeringfellowship.
