NYC Urban Fellows apps due Jan. 8
The Urban Fellows Program , sponsored by The City of New York , is a highly selective, nine-month (September to May) fellowship which combines work in Mayoral offices and City agencies with an intensive seminar series that explores the current urban issues which have an impact on public policy. Participants come from all over the country to work in New York City.
After participating in an extensive interview process, New York City Urban 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 to promote 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.
During the year, these lessons are further enhanced by group trips to Washington D.C. and Albany, where the Fellows meet face-to-face with the representatives and policy-makers who help shape life in New York City.
