Atlanta Urban Fellowship Program
Recently, New York City received a grant for $189,000 from the Sloan
Foundation to institute an Urban Fellowship Program to select twenty
highly talented young men and women from universities throughout the
country to serve full-time internships for a twelve month period.
All of these young people are Master 's Degree candidates in their
r espective fields. New York Fellows are assigned to agency heads and
Mayoral assistants and given commensurate responsibilities . This
program is a di rect parallel to the White House Fellows started by
John Gardner under President Kennedy , Atlanta deserves such a program.
In my opinion, these interns should be handled separately from the
Atlant a Urban Corps since they will be year-round and will r equire
special counseling and guidance only available f rom a source such as
your of f'i ce .
I would be glad to submit a detailed proposal for an Atlanta Urban
Fellows Program and also pursue Foundation funding if you are interested.
