New Scholarship Assists NY Students with Dream Internship on Capitol Hill
By Neil A. Carousso
NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — New York college students can apply for the opportunity to work in Congress next semester.
A new scholarship will be awarded to State University of New York (SUNY) students who need financial support to intern in Washington. It is offered by the Former Administrative Assistant of the Year Award (affectionally called FAATY) in partnership with SUNY and the New York State Society.
2021 FAATY honoree Kevin Fogarty, former chief of staff to retired Rep. Peter King (R-NY) and co-founder of Ambrose Partners, told WCBS 880’s Neil A. Carousso the interns will have the opportunity to learn from veteran Capitol Hill staffers.
“This really gives these individuals an opportunity to see things that they normally would not do or be able to see,” Fogarty said. “It also allows them to create relationships not only with this office, but with other offices, and also with former chiefs of staff, too, who can help mentor these students and try to point them in the right direction for something they’re interested in.”
Interns will be assigned to an office of a member in the New York Congressional Delegation.
Fogarty invites SUNY students who are interested in learning more about the internship to contact him directly via Ambrose Partners’ website.
