The Ron Brown Scholar Program proudly announces that Mariam Keita, RBS Class of 2020, has been awarded the prestigious 2024 Rangel Fellowship. This significant achievement underscores Mariam’s dedication to international service and her commitment to making a positive impact on a global scale.

The Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Program, administered by Howard University, is a U.S. Department of State initiative designed to attract and prepare young individuals for careers in international service. Named in honor of Congressman Rangel, the program highlights the diversity and global leadership that exemplify America’s strength. Managed by the Ralph J. Bunche International Affairs Center at Howard University and funded by the U.S. Department of State, the Rangel Program offers unparalleled opportunities for aspiring Foreign Service Officers.

As a Rangel Fellow, Mariam will receive a graduate fellowship to finance a two-year graduate program, participate in two summer internships, and benefit from mentoring by a Foreign Service Officer, alongside other professional development activities. This fellowship supports outstanding seniors and college graduates who aspire to join the Foreign Service and contribute to U.S. global values and interests.

Mariam joins a distinguished group of Rangel Fellows and Scholars who are representing the United States in 60 countries worldwide. These individuals are promoting human rights, assisting American citizens overseas, enhancing prosperity and development, and fostering deeper ties between the United States and other nations.

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Mariam Keita on this remarkable achievement and look forward to witnessing her continued contributions to international affairs.
