Stipend awards (taxable) help current students take non-paid off-campus opportunities related to their career (internship, volunteer, off campus research, student teaching and practicum) that they would not have otherwise been able to afford. If the student is provided a small stipend (lunch/travel) or the paid internship is out of state, you might still be eligible.   

  • The stipends are competitive, with approximately 30% of students selected to receive an award. 
  • All majors are eligible but a few of our stipends are specific to majors (English, Finance, Computer Science, Urban Sustainability). 
  • Review the application for the specific criteria. Students must meet the minimum to even qualify.  
  • Winners are determined by their resume,  essay responses, recommendation and in some cases an interview.

How do students apply? Please note that all applications are looked at after the deadline. We do not review them as they come in.

Are there other stipend/funding opportunities?

Planning to intern in 2021?.

Due to the urgent need for proper health precautions in employment settings during COVID-19, CUNY has informed the campuses that student internship-seekers should be performing their new roles in remote-only format, in most, if not all cases. For those instances where an exception can be made, a waiver is required to ensure the employer has substantive plans and procedures in place to keep staff (including the interns) protected against the coronavirus. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure they or the employer provide documentation of the employer’s safety protocols (risk mitigation) and waiver must be submitted to the Magner Career Center prior to the student commencing work.  Students should ask their internship employer to send the documentation about their safety protocol to Students who do not submit the waiver are assumed to be participating an a fully remote internship. If a student chooses to participate in person internships they obtained on their own or before documentation is received are participating at their own risk. The need for this documentation includes all internships that require any “travel” and such student cannot perform it 100% remotely. Students applying for part-time or full-time employment should be vigilant in their assessment of positions that require in-person work during the ensuing pandemic. In addition to doing their due diligence in ascertaining an employers risk-mitigation, students should contact the Magner Career Center to discuss safety concerns regarding a potential employment opportunity. The student understands that the ultimate decision to perform any in-person work during COVID-19 is theirs to make and that such work may present unique health risks
