Senior becomes UGA’s first Rangel Graduate Fellow

Ashley Bartlett, a senior in the Honors Program, won a 2011 Charles B. Rangel Graduate Fellowship. One of 15 selected nationally, Bartlett is the first UGA recipient of this award that recognizes outstanding students pursuing careers as U.S. Foreign Service diplomats. Bartlett will graduate in May with bachelor’s degrees in international affairs and history.

“Ashley is clearly destined for a successful career in public service on an international level,” said David S. Williams, associate provost and director of UGA’s Honors Program. “As an undergraduate, she has taken advantage of numerous opportunities to conduct policy analysis and study abroad, all to glowing reports from those with whom she has worked.”

The fellowship is administered through the Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Program, a collaborative initiative between Howard University and the U.S. Department of State.
