The National Urban Fellows (NUF) is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to prepare students from diverse backgrounds for leadership positions in the public and nonprofit sectors. The NUF-MPA requires students to complete their coursework in 14-months. Students take 21 credits on-campus during two intensive summer sessions. In the fall and spring semesters, fellows complete the remaining MPA coursework online while also receiving academic credit for working full-time in a nine-month mentorship assignment in a public or nonprofit organization. Each fellow receives a monthly stipend, health insurance, a book allowance, relocation and travel reimbursement, and full payment of Baruch College tuition. There is a competitive admission process, including a written application followed by an in-person interview. NUF maintains an extensive alumni network that connects students to a wide range of public service careers.
