New York State Housing Finance Agency

Recognizing that internships are often the foundation of informed career choices, the Minority Internship Program was established in 1990. These internships are an established point of entry into the business of public finance. Each year, four interns are selected for a year-long program, which includes two six-month terms. The first term is spent working at the New York State Housing Finance Agency on single and multifamily debt issuance, real estate finance, and mortgage insurance issues. For the second six-month term, interns will work at one of the co-sponsoring (Bear, Stearns & Co., Morgan Stanley, Citigroup Global Markets Inc., and UBS Financial Services, Inc.) private sector firms where they function as analysts in these and other related areas.

Eligibility: Minority students who have or expect to receive a baccalaureate degree prior to the start of the internship. The program is available only to New York State residents. Quantitative ability, as demonstrated in courses such as economics, business administration, or mathematics, is important, but it is not necessary to have majored in one of these areas. Successful candidates should have an interest in finance, be familiar with governmental institutions, and have the willingness to work long hours. The salary for the one-year internship is $40,000 plus medical benefits.
Deadline for Applications: March 1
