The Jack Rudin and Lewis Rudin Research Fellowship

Sheyla Delgado, Rudin Fellow (2012-2013)

With support from the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc., The Jack Rudin and Lewis Rudin Research Fellowship allows graduate student researchers from the City University of New York to participate as members of research team at the John Jay College Research and Evaluation Center (JohnJayREC).

Rudin Fellows participate in projects underway at JohnJayREC, particularly those involving work with government agencies and nonprofits from New York City. Center staff members work on projects to improve the operations and effectiveness of justice agencies in New York City by generating and analyzing data about the effects of their interventions and crime reduction strategies. Fellows work with other Center staff to generate high-quality evaluation outcomes and to test the effectiveness of various interventions.

Fellowships require students to be available to work up to 10 hours per week.

The Research and Evaluation Center accepts applications for The Jack Rudin and Lewis Rudin Research Fellowship at the end of each summer. Two to three CUNY graduate students are awarded fellowships for the academic year and through the following summer (one-year renewals are possible). Each fellowship provides a monthly stipend up to $1,000. Applications are encouraged from students specializing in fields such as social and behavioral science, social services and social welfare, public health, statistics, legal studies, or other fields related to the work of the Research and Evaluation Center. To be eligible for a fellowship, applicants should be enrolled in a Masters or Doctoral program of study at a CUNY college with graduation expected no sooner than May of the year following application.
