Fellowship Programs

Our fellowship programs provide funding for CUNY faculty and students to spend one or two semesters at the Institute, during which senior faculty will assist them in developing research projects and proposals, or they can contribute to existing work of Institute faculty and staff.

Doctoral Student Fellowship Program

Our Doctoral Student Fellowship Program launched in Fall 2016. Students are invited to apply to receive a stipend to participate in Institute research projects or to develop a dissertation research project of their own, with the support of Institute faculty and staff.

CUNY Food Justice Leadership Fellowship Program

The CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute will be launching the CUNY Food Justice Leadership Fellowship in January 2020. The Fellowship is an 18-month paid program that offers continued training, and opportunities for participation in food-related civic engagement to emerging food leaders attending a CUNY school. This program is open to individuals between the ages of 18 and 25 that have at least one year, or more than 200 hours of documented involvement in food justice activities. If you are passionate about food justice in New York City, and want to make a difference while connecting with like-minded people, apply to the Fellowship! Submit your application by November 1, 2019 at this link https://form.jotform.com/92404387585163. For more information, please contact Charita Johnson James at Charita.Johnson@sph.cuny.edu.
