City Internships

The launch of our 2019 Internship Program application process has been a resounding success. We've had an unprecedented response, and I have you to thank for being a part of the incredible reaction this year.
Our Global Accelerator Programs in Paris, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco are filling very quickly, and I anticipate there will be no places remaining after the New Year. As such, I would like to take the opportunity to ask interested students to apply sooner rather than later.
Students can of course continue applying to our other larger and longer-running Program locations; which are London, Los Angeles, New York City, Miami and Washington D.C.

For a short reminder of what we do: our Programs are open to students from any year and with any major, and they may choose a placement in one of 9 career fields: Banking & Financial services; Consulting & Professional services; Law & Politics; Technology & Engineering; Marketing, Advertising & PR; Media, Entertainment & Journalism; Art, Fashion & Design; Start-ups & Entrepreneurship; Charities, NFPs & NGOs.

Students may be directed to apply now at:

For those who wish to review our Prospectus which explains our Programs and offering, you may find it here and also a printable Noticeboard Flyer is available here.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to read and share this email, and I wish you a very Happy Holidays.

American Voices Project

I am writing to let you know about an exciting new fellowship program that might interest your students. This program is built around a new project, led by top scholars from Stanford University and Princeton University, that will uncover how the American Dream is faring and how inclusive and opportunity-enhancing policy might be designed.

We’re now recruiting a select group of research fellows to become part of this study. The fellows will receive intensive training and then visit communities across America to talk with families about their lives, hopes, and dreams. It’s not a survey, it’s not a poll, but an honest and open conversation that we’re holding in all 50 states. 

The fellows will then learn how to analyze the interviews with the latest data science methods, identify the country’s emerging problems, and begin the task of building 21st-century policy that responds to the voices of the people. It will be a life-changing experience that prepares the next generation of leaders in academia, government, politics, nonprofits, and beyond. 

I’m hoping that you’ll share this opportunity with your students. The fellowship begins in June 2019 and concludes in August 2020. We offer two application deadlines: January 7, 2019, and February 7, 2019. For more details, check out our website or this overview of the fellowship program. Students can submit applications directly through our website.

We look forward to receiving applications from your students. And I’m happy to answer any questions you may have!
