SIPA undergraduate Raphael Garcia is one of only 15 national winners of the Rangel Fellowship, which includes a $90,000 award for graduate study, two paid internships, and a fast track to a global career in public service.
As an undergraduate, Garcia already completed an internship at the US Embassy in Madrid before graduating with a double major in International Relations and International Business.
The Rangel Fellowship is among the most competitive and generous national awards for our nation's undergraduates wishing to pursue a Master's program in public policy, international affairs, public administration, or academic fields such as business, economics, political science, sociology, or foreign languages.
Garcia is the second FIU undergraduate to receive a Rangel. FIU undergraduate David Rodriguez won two years ago and completed his Master's at George Washington University.
