hackNY Fellows Program

Return to Fellowship Search

The hackNY Fellows Program is an intensive program designed to introduce students to NYC's startup ecosystem by pairing the best technical minds with great New York startups. You'll live in the heart of NYC with a cohort of some of the most talented and creative student technologists from all over the world. Local startups are carefully selected for the program and demonstrate both innovative tech and a strong mentoring environment. You will contribute meaningfully at your paid internship and learn from your work, our curated Speaker Series, and your fellow hackers. In an initiative led by our AlumNY and reflecting their community values, you will volunteer in programs for positive social impact in NYC. With a focus on increasing diversity and inclusivity in tech, you'll work within underserved communities by teaching, mentoring or using your technical skills for social good.

Award / Eligibility Details:

hackNY Fellows must be current, full time students enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree at the time of application. We encourage applications from institutions across the country. International students are also encouraged if they are already enrolled at a US university at the time of application.

The hackNY Fellows program is 10 weeks long over the summer months. All the Fellows live together in NYU summer housing. We’ll provide housing with the Fellows even if your home is in NYC, because it’s important for our class to be able to easily be together as a community. Startups pay a competitive salary and commit to a meaningful project.
