Are there scholarships or payment plans available for the Fellowship for Emerging Leaders in Public Service?

Unfortunately, we are not able to offer scholarships or payment plans. We do encourage Fellows to see if their organizations are willing to contribute some or all of the cost as an investment in their professional development.
 
NYU Wagner and the Research Center for Leadership in Action subsidize the bulk of the program cost for each Fellowship.

If I am not currently working full-time for a public service organization, can I still apply to the Fellowship for Emerging Leaders in Public Service?

You must be working full-time in a paid public service position in the New York City area to apply for FELPS and must remain in a public service position throughout the fellowship. Unfortunately, internships and part-time work do not qualify.
