Graduate Summer Associate Program

The Graduate Summer Associate program provides outstanding graduate students with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience in public service at the New York Fed. Through advanced project work assignments and professional development activities, associates gain an extensive understanding of the Bank’s work. Summer associates will be given the opportunity to enhance their business skills through critical financial analysis, formal presentations, research and writing.

Associates are assigned to a particular area or function but also have opportunities for collaboration with other associates and employees from around the Bank. In addition to their daily responsibilities, associates attend weekly presentations hosted by senior management on the Bank's responsibilities and operations.

The summer program allows participants to learn about career opportunities in public service at the New York Fed. The program is the Bank’s largest campus recruitment source for full-time jobs.


The program requires that applicants complete their first year of graduate study. The program starts in early June. The program is extremely competitive and size is limited. Applicants must have a demonstrated interest in banking, economics, public policy, or finance, a strong academic record and a passion for public service. Excellent interpersonal and written communication skills are essential. Specific requirements may be applied based on Bank area.

All positions for the 2014 Summer Program have been filled. Please check back in the fall for details on the 2015 Summer Program.
