HRA Fellowship Program

The HRA Fellowship Program (FP) provides limited paid work opportunities for eligible CUNY EDGE students. The primary goal of the FP program is to support CUNY EDGE students with meeting HRA compliance requirements while gaining valuable work experience and building their resumes.

How to Join the Fellowship Program
