New York Public Radio is partnering with Scholarship Plus to give our students paid internships between high school and college at the headquarters of this outstanding public radio producer and broadcaster. Students work with development officers, on-air journalists, administrators and human-resources executives, developing work and people skills surrounded by interesting and dedicated staff members. As part of the program, each student is assigned a mentor from New York Public Radio.
New York Public Radio is comprised of WNYC and WQXR – the two top public radio stations in the country, measured by audience size – as well as The Jerome L. Greene Performance space and the web sites wnyc.org, wqxr.org and thegreenespace.org. Its news, information, classical music and cultural affairs programming and live events reach a combined radio, web and studio audience of more than two million people each week.
Scholarship Plus is one of more than 25 incubator programs under the sponsorship of the Fund for the City of New York. The Fund is a nonprofit corporation that is exempt from taxation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The Fund's mission is to improve quality of life for all New Yorkers by providing strategic organizational support to government and nonprofit organizations. In carrying out that mission, the Fund operates its Incubator Program, which provides support to small nonprofit organizations and provides tax-exempt status.
