New York City Urban Fellows Program

Sponsored by NYC DCAS

The NYC 2018- 2019 Urban Fellows Program application period is now open!

The NYC Urban Fellows Program is a highly selective, nine-month fellowship which combines work in Mayoral offices and City agencies with volunteer service opportunities and a 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.

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.

The Fellows’ work experience is supplemented by the seminar series, a unique learning experience that exposes Fellows to public and private sector leaders. Guest speakers, including senior level City officials and alumni, share their leadership experiences and their work on City initiatives.

The unique opportunity to work with current decision makers and assist in the implementation of public policy distinguishes the Urban Fellows Program as the premier training program in government.
