Subject: PPIA and Rangel Summer 2022 International Affairs Programs Description: Are you an undergraduate interested in making a positive change in the world? Do you receive need-based financial aid? If so, there are two programs you should learn about. See below links for information sessions. 1. The PPIA (Public Policy and International Affairs Junior Fellows - https://ppiaprogram.org/) program is for juniors with strong interests in pursuing careers in international affairs or domestic public policy. This all-expenses-paid program for summer 2022 includes courses (with transferable credit), a full range of extracurricular activities, and career-development support, travel & room and board, and more! Important: **This program focuses on students receiving need-based financial aid (demonstrated by FAFSA), as well as students from groups historically underrepresented in international affairs leadership roles in government, nonprofits, international organizations and other institutional settings.** PPIA is open to juniors who are U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or DACA recipients; GPA of 3.0 recommended. The deadline will likely be in early November. 2. The Rangel Summer Enrichment Program (http://rangelprogram.org/summer-enrichment-program/) is for students with strong interests in pursuing careers in international affairs. The program provides 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. This all-expense-paid program takes place at Howard University for six weeks in summer 2022. The Rangel program encourages the application of members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service; the program has a strong focus on students who receive need-based financial aid (demonstrated by FAFSA). Rangel is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors and requires U.S. citizenship. Rangel requires a GPA minimum of 3.2. The deadline will likely be in early February 2022.
