Too often, our students have trouble finding a career after college. Unfortunately, despite students’ academic success, their lack of relevant work experience puts them at a disadvantage. The CUNY EDGE Fellowship Program is an ideal opportunity for our campus to remedy this situation by offering our students a chance to work in an appropriate office based on their majors. Students can work up to 19 hours per week each semester continuing through the summer and winter intersessions.
I urge your office to consider participating in this program by referencing the online flyer and by reviewing the online program request form. Allowing our students to benefit from the experience of serving in your office will give them the edge they need to succeed after college, and since the city is paying their salaries, there is no financial cost to you.
Thank you for your consideration.
