The Urban Fellows Program

The Urban Fellows Program aims to enrich the learning experiences of graduate students by exposing them to Miami-Dade County’s urban government, with over 25 departments and 27,000 employees.  The non-paid, 15-week work experience will give graduate students the unique opportunity to work on special projects that will impact the efficiency of our operations, the economic development of our county, and in the end, the well-being of our residents.

Miami-Dade County is committed to the development of future civic leaders, and through the Urban Fellows Program the County anticipates attracting dedicated and innovative students who will make a difference in Miami-Dade County.


The Urbans Fellows Program aims to enrich graduate student’s learning experience by introducing them to Miami-Dade County’s government in action.  Students will participate in well-planned and organized projects that match their educational objectives, and in turn provide the county with a quality research and suggestions.
