Diplomatic Perspective is a DC-based women-led NGO working to bridge the gap in international affairs for diverse youth and underrepresented young adults. Diplomatic Perspective was founded by 2 HBCU graduates who credit their study abroad and international experience to upward mobility upon return. Our programs increase black students' social and economic success by providing global access. Our 4 main programs include: (1) Diplomatic Leaders Development Program (DLDP), which is a 6-month program for DCPS and Princes George's County 11th and 12th-grade high school students; (2) Global Peace Fellowship, a $10,000 year-long research fellowship for graduate or phD student; (3) HBCU Internship: 6-month paid internship for a current HBCU student (4) REACH: HBCU Global Institute; 3-day conference for HBCU students to get exposed to international affairs and study abroad. All students who complete Diplomatic Perspective programming are eligible to receive a voucher for their first U.S. Passport.
Providing international education and global access to black students in the United States. Our overall goal is that every black student finds their purpose in the world.
