The New York Union Semester is offered through the Joseph S. Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies and provides students with the opportunity to intern at a labor union or community organization in New York City while taking Labor Studies courses at the City University of New York for a semester.
The program is open to all-undergraduate majors. In addition to a $1700 scholarship and a weekly $210 stipend, all participants receive 16 undergraduate credits for their work and a Labor Studies Certificate.
Internships include a wide range of activities--from organizing to research, to media and communication. A diverse group of unions and community organizations have hosted interns, including SEIU, HERE, TWU, Community Voices Heard, and Jobs with Justice. New York Union Semester is an excellent career opportunity for students interested in working for social and economic justice.
