Hire a Fellow!
The S Jay Levy Fellowship is a year-long professional development experience, culminating in a 280-hour summer internship. The S Jay Levy Fellowships were created through the generosity of the late S Jay Levy ’42, a noted economist and strong advocate of policies to improve employment opportunity.
The S Jay Levy Fellowship Program selects academically accomplished, career focused undergraduate students. Students must be among the top 20% in their school or division to be invited to apply. Our fellows represent a diversity of majors across the City College of New York, including engineering, medicine, sciences, business, education, social sciences, humanities and the arts.
The Summer Internship:
Fellows may secure a paid or unpaid internship. Fellows who secure an unpaid internship are provided with a monetary award from The S Jay Levy Fellowship for Future Leaders Program.

How We Work With Our Partners:
We partner with a variety of businesses, non-profit organizations and health organizations to meet their summer internship needs. Our assistance includes regular check-in with site supervisors and students. There is NO cost to you for partnering with us.*
*This would not include partner costs associated with organizations that provide payment directly to interns.
To meet the summer internships recruitment needs of our partners:
• Internship vacancies are shared regularly with our fellows and our fellows are provided with guidance in applying within a recruitment timeline that meets your needs.
• Fellows with the appropriate major, skills and career interests are directly contacted and encouraged to apply for appropriate vacancies.
• Partners receive support throughout the process from coordinating interview times, mock interviews, resume and cover letter review, and regular communication with fellows.
• Partners are offered the opportunity to staff a table at our 'Internship Fair', held in November on our historic City College campus, to recruit our fellows.
• When an internship is “unpaid”, fellows receive support directly from the program to cover their time in the internship.
