New York City Urban Fellows Program

September 18, 2016

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.

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. From the budget process to agency operations, low income housing to affordable health care and education to economic development the Fellows come to appreciate the wide range of challenges in New York City government.
