Please note that BOTH Albany-based internship programs have increased their award amounts, to $6,200!

CUNY will continue to provide a supplemental award to any award-eligible student who is selected and confirmed in the Assembly or Senate. The exact amount of the supplemental award will be fixed once all participant numbers are confirmed in both Albany programs. Nevertheless, all award-eligible CUNY students will see a handsome increase in their 2019 award totals!
