William R. Ginsberg served on the board of CHPC for more than four decades. He was a pioneering environmental lawyer and NYC Parks Commissioner who cared deeply about urban planning and environmental law. In addition to CHPC’s Ginsberg Fellowship, Mr. Ginsberg’s legacy is also honored by the William R. Ginsberg Memorial Summer Fellowship in Environmental Law at Hofstra Law School, which funds environmental law internships for Hofstra students.
This fellowship offers a unique opportunity to work on original research for an organization that plays a prominent role in shaping public policy in NYC. Research areas focus on housing, the urban environment and open space, geography,real estate finance, transportation, land use and zoning, public economics, or community development.
The Graduate Fellowship is designed for current or recently graduated students of public policy, urban planning, environmental studies, geography, architecture, urban design, economics, real estate finance, business, or other related subjects.
