Empire State Fellows Program

March 20, 2013

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo is now accepting applications for the second class of Empire State Fellows. 

The two-year Empire State Fellows Program is a full-time leadership training program that prepares a new generation of leaders for policy-making roles in New York State government, and encourages

professionals from underrepresented groups to join the Governor in creating a new New York.

The 2013 class of Empire State Fellows will serve from September 2013  to September 2015, and receive an annual salary commensurate with experience not to exceed $72,765, plus a generous benefits package.   At the end of the fellowship, a performance review process will  identify fellows that will be given the opportunity to continue to serve as leaders in New York State government after completing the program. 

Governor Cuomo will appoint each Empire Fellow to work directly with a  Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner, or other high-level policy maker. Work assignments will offer Fellows unparalleled experience collaborating with senior officials and participating in the policy-making process.  While taking part in the work of government,  Empire Fellows will participate in educational and professional

development programs that will prepare them to confront the increasingly complex policy challenges facing New York State. 

Applications for the Empire State Fellows Program must be received no later than April 12, 2013 at 11:59 p.m.  Additional information about  the Empire State Fellows Program is available on our website at www.newnyleaders.com

If you have specific questions about the program you may contact  fellows@exec.ny.gov
