Special Projects Fund Intern (Graduate-level)

The New York Health Foundation (NYHealth) is a private and independent foundation dedicated to improving the health of all New Yorkers. NYHealth began operations in 2006; today, it has approximately $320 million in assets, as well as a $16 million annual grants and operations budget.

The Foundation is committed to making grants, but also to making a difference beyond grant dollars: informing health care policy and practice; spreading effective programs to improve the health system; serving as a convener of health leaders across the State; and providing technical assistance to grantees and partners. Today, the Foundation concentrates its initiatives in three program areas: Empowering Health Care Consumers; Healthy Food, Healthy Lives; and Veterans’ Health. NYHealth also engages in responsive grantmaking through a Special Projects Fund.


The Special Projects Fund intern will work closely with the Special Projects Fund program officer and program assistant. This position is ideal for graduate-level students who are interested in learning about public interventions and community strategies that improve health equity and access. Additionally, this position offers interns exposure to health care philanthropy. 

The internship will run from October 2022 through June 2023. This is a part-time position (15–18 hours per week). The hourly compensation rate is $18. The work schedule is flexible. 

This position is hybrid remote/in-person at the Foundation’s New York City office, with at least two days per week expected in the office. Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination is required for employment.
