NYC Summer Intern Housing for Pell Grant Recipients

Recognizing how expensive it can be to intern in New York City, EHS is pleased to offer discounted summer rates to students currently receiving a Federal Pell Grant. We hope this initiative will give more students an opportunity to intern in the Big Apple.

Additionally, all students who reserve summer 2019 housing by March 19th will receive a $200 gift card for a food delivery service (such as Grubhub) when they arrive, also helping to lighten the cost of a summer in NYC.

Information on both offers.
