April 20, 2016

Justine KingJustine King ’15 has been awarded a Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Fellowship, the first University student or alumnus to be selected for the highly competitive nationwide program.

Funded by the U.S. Department of State and managed by Howard University, the Rangel Fellowship supports select individuals who wish to pursue a career representing the United States in the foreign service of the Department of State.

The fellowship will provide King with approximately $95,000 over a two-year period. She was one of 30 fellows selected nationwide.

“We are thrilled to have Justine join our program,” said Patricia Scroggs, director of the program. “Our selection panel was very impressed by her intelligence, achievements, and commitment to service. Her experience at Rochester provided an outstanding foundation for her in these areas. I’m confident that she will excel in graduate school and will contribute to global peace and prosperity as a U.S. diplomat.”

King is from Middletown, New York, and majored in international relations at Rochester. She will intern this summer for a member of Congress on Capitol Hill, working on foreign affairs issues. In the fall, she will pursue a master’s degree in international and intercultural communication at American University in Washington, D.C. In the summer of 2017, she will intern in a U.S. embassy.
