The Furman Metropolitan Fellowship is an alumni led grant program established in 2015 to create a bridge between Furman University students and New York City internship connections and community.

The recipients of the fellowship will commit to interning in New York City for a full summer and are supported by alumni to promote their success.

The fellowship includes support in finding a summer internship, networking opportunities, mentorship, and financial assistance.



FMF aims to:

Provide Furman students with the connections, means and support needed to obtain internships in New York City.

Create new opportunities for alumni, parents and faculty to directly impact the professional success of Furman students.

Enhance the visibility and eminence of Furman University, its students, employees and alumni in New York City.
