Public Service Corps (PSC)

The New York City Public Service Corps (PSC) is the nation's first and largest off-campus internship program for college students. PSC is dedicated to providing undergraduate and graduate students with opportunities to serve their communities.

Since the program's inception in 1966 as the NYC Urban Corps, over 100,000 students from more than 100 colleges and universities have participated in PSC's public-sector internships.

The Public Service Corps currently offers Federal Work-Study Program internships as well as placements in which students may work for academic credit. Students choose from internship opportunities in many City government agencies. Assignments are full-time during the summer, and part-time during the academic year.

Public Service Corps students may explore a wide range of professional career areas including law, research, finance, education, social work, environmental studies, accounting, office administration, health, information systems, graphic arts, journalism, engineering, and computer technology.

Student interns will:

  • Gain valuable credentials, contacts and references for future employment
  • Apply their classroom learning in the workplace
  • Gain marketable skills and expertise
  • Obtain exposure to the broad range of professional opportunities in the public sector
  • Learn more about specific career options within City government
