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. Enclosure cc:
