New York City Urban Fellows Program

The Urban Fellows Program is a highly selective, nine-month fellowship which combines work in Mayoral offices and City agencies with an intensive seminar series that explores current urban issues impacting public policy. Program participants are diverse and come from all over the country to work in New York City.

Fellows are placed at an array of agencies across the City where they learn about public policy through a hands-on approach.This knowledge is supplemented by a series of workshops that help promote a deep understanding of the structure of New York City government. The program seeks to ensure that every Urban Fellow comprehends the intricacies of City, State and Federal finance and the interaction between these levels of government.

The nine month Fellowship begins early September and ends mid May. The program provides a stipend of $30,000 and Health Insurance coverage (not including dental or vision).
Please note: The Urban Fellows Program does not provide student loans, financial aid or scholarship for study. Housing for participants is not included.
