About the Caucus CUNY Scholars Program:
The Caucus CUNY Scholars Program is a local internship program for students who are interested in the service of the New York State Legislature. The Program allows students to learn about the work performed by the Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic & Asian Legislative Caucus, as well as the services provided by the New York State Legislature to communities of need in the City of New York.
The Caucus CUNY Scholars Program is open to any student who has completed 30 credits. In some cases, outstanding upper freshmen may be considered. Any major may apply, but students who wish to be considered should demonstrate an interest in, and understanding of, state government and politics. Applicants must carry a 3.0 GPA and must submit at least one confidential faculty recommendation form along with their written applications and official transcripts. CUNY will award $2,000 to each student and will cover the costs for Albany visits (as mentioned above) and other related events. For more information regarding this program and other the Edward T. Rogowsky Internship Program opportunities, contact Tiffany M. Bailey-Gilles, Guttman ETR Campus Coordinator at Tiffany.Bailey@guttman.cuny.edu
