Government and Public Policy
New York City Urban Fellows & Government Fellows Programs
These programs offer outstanding college seniors and graduate students the opportunity and challenge of an intensive field work experience in urban government. Fellows work closely with City officials on long- and short-term projects and attend weekly seminars to get an academic perspective on the workings and problems of local government. Urban Fellows are selected annually in a nationwide competition and serve for a full academic year, from mid-September to mid-June. Government Fellows participate in a 10-week program. They receive a stipend from the City and a choice of paid health insurance plans. A fellow must be about to start his/her senior year, or must be an accepted or actual graduate student.
All students who are interested in an involvement in urban government are encouraged to apply regardless of previous field of training. For further information write: Director, Urban Fellows Program, 32 Worth Street, New York, NY 10013.
