National Urban Fellows, Inc. (NUF) is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to prepare students from diverse backgrounds for leadership positions in government and nonprofit organizations. It has successfully prepared over 1,400 mid-career people of color and women for public service careers. There is an extensive network of NUF alumni from across the nation and internationally. NUF has partnered with Baruch College since 1983.
The MPA is attained in 14-months. Students complete 24 credits on-campus during two intensive summer sessions. In the fall and spring semesters, fellows complete an additional 21 credits online while working full-time in a nine-month mentorship assignment with a public official or nonprofit administrator. Mentorship placements are arranged by NUF and may be in any location in the nation or Puerto Rico. Each fellow receives a monthly stipend, health insurance, a book allowance, relocation and travel reimbursement, and partial payment of Baruch College tuition.
