Each Fellow receives a bi-weekly stipend to cover basic personal needs, and shares an intentional-community budget for common household expenses including food. Rent, utilities and medical insurance are all provided through the program. In addition, each Fellow receives MetroCards for the entire year, ensuring unlimited access to New York City’s excellent public transportation system. St. Mary’s is very close to busy subway stations, and is centrally located
among schools and seminaries.
Fellows each have a single room with a bed, wardrobe, desk and chair. There is a communal eating/living area with a kitchenette. Fellows enjoy high-speed wireless internet.
Past Fellows have gone on to a variety of pursuits: graduate school/seminary, other volunteer/Residential Fellowship programs, and/or full-time work. NYSJC’s professional, social and religious affiliations and contacts can help Fellows connect to New York City’s many resources and opportunities.
