Applications Open for Urban Fellows Program | Bronx Free Press

Primed for public service?

Applications are open for the 2020 Urban Fellows Program.

The program, open to recent college graduates, is a nine-month government fellowship that exposes fellows to urban issues impacting public policy and decision-making in New York City. The program combines work in mayoral offices and city agencies with volunteer service opportunities and a seminar series.

“The Urban Fellows Program offers a pathway for recent college graduates to enter a career in public service,” said Lisette Camilo, Commissioner of the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services. “Now more than ever, our city needs bright and talented people who are committed to serving others and making a difference in our communities.”

Urban Fellows come from diverse backgrounds and learn firsthand how to create systemic change and help strengthen local government. Areas of policy learning include economic development, environmental health and sustainability, the criminal justice system, and education.

The fellowship begins on September 8, 2020 and ends May 14, 2021. Applications are due by January 13, 2020.
