BARUCH COLLEGE–Graduate and undergraduate students who attend CUNY can partner with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority through a paid internship program. Last summer, the program received 16,216 applications for just 150 slots during its first year. By the fall, a second application session began on a part-time basis.
Through the Research Foundation of CUNY, students who are employed full-time can receive benefits, including medical coverage. Currently, 84 interns are completing the program’s first full year by working with the MTA.
“CUNY helped me obtain an internship at the MTA, and I feel confident that the MTA will provide me with the resources and mentors to grow,” LIRR Program Management Intern Javier Inga said.
