The New York State Senate Fellowships program is now accepting applications for its graduate fellowship program (Thursday, September 7, 2017 through Wednesday, July 11, 2018):


James L. Biggane Fellowship in Finance

Legislative Fellowships

Richard A. Wiebe Public Service Fellowship

Richard J. Roth Journalism Fellowship


Approximately 16 fellowships are available.


The application deadline is Friday, April 28, 2017,


All fellowships are on-site in Albany, New York. They are not financial aid for academic work, on-campus or classroom study. Housing in Albany is the responsibility of the fellow.


A $33,000 grant-in-study stipend is distributed in biweekly installments prorated from the first day to the last day of enrollment. Some benefit options are available (health, dental, vision, life insurance, and the New York State retirement program).


Applications from a wide range of interests and disciplines are welcome and encouraged. Training in the history, politics or government of New York State is not required. Placements are usually to the office of an elected member of the Senate or to a central staff office.


While fellows are not Senate employees, after the program ends, fellows may sometimes be hired to full employee status in the Senate. A great number of former fellows are today employees of the Senate, the Assembly, the Executive Chamber, state agencies, associations and lobbying firms.
