New York Needs You Fellowship Program is searching for high potential, goal-oriented college students who are the first in their families to attend college and who possess a strong track record of performance and leadership. In selecting our 2010-2011 NYNY Fellow class, we will consider the following:

Performance - Applicants must have a strong academic record, reflecting a commitment to hard work and excellence. We recommend that applicants have a college GPA of 3.25 or greater.
Leadership - Applicants must demonstrate leadership and a commitment to communities in need through work experience, campus organizations, athletics or other extracurricular activities.
Ambition – Applicants must clearly articulate their professional goals and possess a passion for achieving their professional goals. The fellowship is open to students from all disciplines and interests.
Preference is given to students who are the first in their families to attend college and those who are from low–income backgrounds.
Preference is given to rising sophomores (current freshmen, graduating Class of Spring/Fall 2013).
Candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents; preference is given to New York residents attending New York-based colleges and universities.

*The list above is not exhaustive but does represent the most important factors that we will consider in making selection decisions. We will make exceptions to the criteria listed above if a student demonstrates unique potential in other ways or has overcome particularly adverse circumstances.

DEADLINE for submitting the NYNY online application form along with your essays, transcripts
and resume is Monday, March 15, 2010, 5:00PM.
