HRA Fellowship Program
The HRA Fellowship Program is an initiative funded by the New York City Human Resources Administration (HRA) to support college retention and help students achieve their goals to graduate in a timely manner.
The program provides a limited number of paid internship opportunities for undergraduate students who are approved by HRA for college attendance, have registered all of their eligible activities with HRA, and still need at least one hour of additional activity to meet HRA’s full-time participation requirement.
Our goal is to support students, helping them remain in compliance with HRA requirements, and focusing on successful completion of their degree and future permanent employment.
