Congratulations to Korde Inniss '14, who was awarded a 2021 Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Fellowship following a highly competitive nationwide selection process. The fellowship will support Korde through a two-year master’s degree in an area of relevance to the Foreign Service. As part of the Rangel Program, in the summer of 2021, Korde served as an intern with a Member of Congress on issues related to foreign affairs. During the summer of 2022, the U.S. Department of State sent him overseas to intern in a U.S. Embassy or Consulate to get hands-on experience in U.S. foreign policy and the work of the Foreign Service. Upon successful completion of the program, Korde will become a U.S. diplomat in the summer of 2023, embarking on one of the most challenging and rewarding careers of service to his country. Korde will work to advance U.S. interests, protect American citizens, and promote peace and prosperity around the world.
