Abey Adeoye, a History/Political Science double major and Honors student, has been selected as a Rangel Fellow
Great news from our Nationally Competitive Fellowships Office. Abey Adeoye, a History/Political Science double major and Honors student, has been selected as a Rangel Fellow. The Charles B. Rangel Graduate Fellowship is a highly competitive fellowship (30 awards from 850 applicants nationally) run by the U.S. Department of State and provides $37,500 annually for two years of graduate study as well as fully paid internships in DC and in an overseas embassy under the mentorship of a senior foreign service officer. Abey flew back to the U.S. from Tanzania where he is studying Swahili on a Boren Scholarship for the finalist interview. Abey is certainly a remarkable student, but we also credit the terrific mentorship he has had by many faculty and our Nationally Competitive Fellowships Office for her his success. We are inspired by generosity of three SU community members who provided funding for Abey to travel back to the States to interview for this and another major fellowship. And kudos to Kristen Walton, Sally Perret and all the faculty who serve as fellowship advisors and support our Nationally Competitive Fellowships Office – they have had more than 50 applications submitted this year.
