About the CUNY IT Internship Program:
The City University of New York (CUNY), in partnership with various New York City government agencies, offers students with computing skills the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working at a New York City agency or New York City public school. The CUNY IT Specialists Internship Program is designed to provide City agencies and schools with high-quality IT interns from CUNY colleges, and in turn provide CUNY students with valuable paid work experience in their field of study. To be eligible for the program, students must be pursuing a degree – associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral – in a computing field such as computer science, computer engineering, information systems, or a related field like business. These are all paid positions, starting between $12 and $14, with the potential to earn up to $16 per hour.
