DASNY Public Finance Diversity Fellowship 2019

Department: Public Finance
Location: Albany, NY

The Fellowship’s Mission

The mission of the fellowship is to build a financial services industry that better reflects the people it serves, and to create and strengthen opportunities to advance diversity and inclusion within the workforce. This consists of increasing the number of individuals from underrepresented groups – including groups based on race, ethnicity, geographic location, gender, disability status, and sexual orientation – who have been historically underrepresented in the financial services industry. The program provides students with the experience and resources necessary to pursue a career as senior-level managers within the finance industry. DASNY is the top municipal bond issuer in the country, with 75 years of experience in the public finance arena. The fellowship can provide valuable hands-on experience. The chance to learn from DASNY’s knowledgeable industry professionals and one of DASNY’s valued and respected investment bank partners is a tremendous opportunity.


DASNY is the nation’s top issuer of low-cost, tax-exempt bonds and one of its largest public builders. We are New York State’s financer, developer, and construction manager. DASNY makes New York competitive and inclusive by financing and building the health, education and scientific facilities that form the backbone of sustainable communities.

We are also playing an essential role in a rising scientific research corridor in the heart of New York City through our work with the City University of New York, Columbia University, Rockefeller University, and New York University.

Our work is central to New York State’s commitment to affordable public education. DASNY finances and builds residence halls for its SUNY partners across New York State. In addition, through programs such as the School Districts Revenue Bond Financing Program, DASNY provides public school districts throughout the State with an efficient financing alternative.

DASNY has equally strong relationships in health care; we are an institutional partner to Orange Regional Medical Center, and significant healthcare complexes including, but not limited to Montefiore Medical Center, Northwell, Mount Sinai, and Memorial Sloan Kettering.

Through this work, DASNY is supporting its partners in winning the competition for the world’s best minds, helping transform health care delivery, and making New York State a better place to live, work, and learn. Together we are making New York State an attractive place to do business.

Leading the Nation

New York leads the nation in embracing diversity and in taking decisive action to shatter barriers to social and economic mobility. Governor Cuomo has set the highest-in-the-nation benchmark with a 30 percent Minority- and Women-owned Business Enterprises (MWBE) Program participation rate with all state contracts.

At DASNY, we are leaders in executing on behalf of the State, finding ways to help MWBEs grow their capacity. DASNY has a proud history of meeting and exceeding the Governor’s 30 percent MWBE goal and has actively partnered with minority and majority underwriting firms, as well as bond counsel firms on numerous financings.

DASNY’s Public Finance Diversity Fellowship program is the next step in continuing this agenda by promoting diversity within the finance industry.
