Urban Fellows Program

The program is designed to introduce outstanding college students and graduates to local government and public service. The rigorous nine-month program combines full-time employment in city government with a comprehensive seminar series exploring the mechanics of city government and the important issues facing the city. Fellows are paid a taxable stipend of $30,000 and receive paid health-insurance plans. Applications will be accepted from candidates who are seniors or who graduated no more than two years ago; who can commit to a nine-month fellowship; and who agree to suspend any graduate study or outside work for the duration of the fellowship.
