Announcing Our New
Fellowship Program:
Fellows for Great Parks

We're very excited to announce our brand new fellowship program for recent college grads, Fellows for Great Parks!

The fellowship is a paid, intensive 9-month immersion in the fascinating world of New York City’s parks, politics, design, research, and equity.

Former NY4P staff and interns have gone on to hold leadership positions with The Point CDC, Empire State Development Corporation, Regional Plan Association, the Municipal Art Society, and more.

We are accepting applications on a rolling basis through the end of September. 

The Fellows for Great Parks program is made possible with generous support from the Levon Levy Foundation.
