On April 6th, the Queens College Fellowships Office hosted a virtual information session on opportunities for students interested in careers in the U.S. Foreign Service. We were joined by representatives from several programs that fund graduate study in relevant fields and provide internships and other professional development. We were also very fortunate that a QC alumnus who won several major awards while at QC and is currently in the Foreign Service after receiving a Rangel fellowship was also able to join the presentation. All of our participants generously shared their expertise on fellowships and the range of careers possible in the foreign Service. You can view and download a recording of the session here and check out these very helpful resources from our guests.
