Applying for an NYU Wagner Fellowship

Recipients of the David Bohnett Public Service Fellowship, the Lisa Goldberg Fellowship, and the Henry Hart Rice Urban Studies Fellowship are amongst NYU Wagner’s most outstanding students. Each has a strong academic record, noteworthy professional experience and aspirations, as well as a proven commitment to public service with a focus on a relevant issue area. Fellowship recipients are expected to exemplify the values of the illustrious individuals for whom our fellowships are named, as well as the values of the NYU Wagner community.

In addition to completing an application for admission, each fellowship applicant must

  • Submit a supplementary written essay related to the fellowship for which he or she is applying, as well as
  • Create and submit the one-minute video essay that is an optional component of the application for non-fellowship applicants.

All fellowships are available only to applicants applying for the fall term.  Applications are evaluated from December through early-February.  Fellowship applicants identified as semi-finalists will be required to participate in interviews via Skype.  Finalists will be invited to a interview with a panel selection committee for their fellowship in New York City on March 25, 2015.  Those finalists who cannot travel to New York, will be able to interview via Skype.
