The Georgina and Charlotte Bloomberg Public Service Fellows Program at NYU
The Georgina and Charlotte Bloomberg Public Service Fellows Program at New York University’s Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service will ensure that the most dedicated and innovative future leaders have access to, and robust training for, careers in public service.
The inaugural group of Bloomberg Public Service Fellows will be selected for the academic year 2021-22, and the two-year program is expected to offer up to 20 students per year full tuition scholarships to complete their NYU Wagner Master of Public Administration or Master of Urban Planning degrees.
This financial assistance, plus paid internships, will ensure that economic barriers do not prevent deserving students from receiving the education and guidance needed to become part of the next generation of diverse public service leaders. The program’s unique curriculum will truly use New York City, one of the most complex cities in the world, as its classroom, providing a greater understanding of New York’s many municipal systems and the non-profit organizations which support them.
Leadership development programming and career guidance will be available for all Bloomberg Fellows, and they will be connected to elected and community leaders as well as to Bloomberg Philanthropies’ network of mayors and government leaders for work opportunities and one-on-one mentoring.
The program is named for Mike Bloomberg’s daughter Georgina and mother Charlotte who both earned degrees from NYU – Georgina from the Gallatin School of Individualized Study in 2010 and Charlotte from the School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance (now the Stern School of Business) in 1929.
