Public Service Scholar Internships
The Public Service Scholar Program is now accepting applications for the 2014-2015 academic year. We seek motivated and enthusiastic undergraduates (particularly women and minority-group members) interested in exploring public service careers.
The Public Service Scholar Program offers students a year-long, hands-on learning opportunity, with a 20-hour per week internship in a public or nonprofit agency and two weekly seminars, taught by experienced City leaders. The seminars explore the most pressing policy issues in New York City and how organizations function and play a role in policy. Students receive 12 credits in Urban Studies and a$6,000 stipend.
The program is open to all majors. Applicants should have a GPA of 3.0 or higher and be within 45 credits of graduation by fall 2014 (i.e., upper juniors or lower seniors).
We strongly encourage you to attend an information session on Wednesday, February 5, 2014, from 1:10 - 2:30 pm in Hunter West, Room 415. Program staff and current Public Service Scholars will be on hand to answer your questions.
