The 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. 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.
