Students admitted in Master of Public Administration, or Master of Urban Planning degree programs have a call to get their education funded. The NYU Wagner is inviting candidates to apply for its Lisa Ellen Goldberg Fellowship. Applicants must possess far-reaching and nuanced intellectual curiosity, passion for learning and problem solving, playful imagination, and enthusiasm for new ways of approaching old problems, thoughtful and articulate communication, both verbal and written, and more to be eligible for this fellowship.
This fellowship makes the education easy for the deserving students in the university by providing them with maximum support. Lisa Ellen Goldberg, the celebrated president of the Charles H. Revson Foundation and beloved wife of John Sexton, the former president of New York University, was a dynamic force in the world of philanthropy and the Jewish community. Before her death in 2007, she worked passionately for philanthropic and Jewish issues and organizations. Her legacy is honored in a fellowship established at NYU Wagner for rising leaders in public service who seek careers in philanthropy or Jewish leadership.
NYU’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service prepares public service leaders to translate ideas into actions that have a significant and lasting impact on the public good. Their faculty’s research changes the way people frame, understand, and act on important public issues. They provide students with critical skills, access to all that New York City has to offer, and a deep understanding of the context surrounding public service challenges which they use to improve cities and communities across the globe. Since 1938, NYU Wagner has been educating the world’s future available service leaders.
