The City University of New York is proud to offer an exciting Fall internship opportunity in New York City for selected students. The CUNY Women’s Public Service Internship Program will provide highly qualified individuals the opportunity to learn by doing in the offices of selected legislators working to benefit women and promote women’s issues in New York. The focus of internship assignments varies.Community affairs, research, and policy formulation in areas of most concern to women is central. CUNY will provide an award of $2,000 to each participating student. The Program is coordinated by the Edward
T. Rogowsky Internship Program in Government & Public Affairs and designated officers at each CUNY college.In addition to the first hand experiences they receive in the local offices of legislators, all CUNY Women’s Public Service Interns are given academic guidance through enrollment in campus-based seminars with faculty, as well as in special meetings with Internship Program staff. Students also draft
research papers and written logs, in which they describe, analyze, and comment upon their internships. Women’s Public Service Interns also attend the CUNY Women’s Leadership Conference and other special events sponsored by the University. This combination of on campus and off campus activities constitutes the core of the CUNY Women’s Public Service Internship Program—an academically
rigorous experience for students considering careers and involvement in public service.

Interns serve up to 10-15 hours per week for the duration of the fall semester. Placements will be in the local offices of legislators at the city, state, and national levels. For further information, please contact your Campus Faculty Coordinator or designated college officer.
