These are one-year positions, and may possibly be renewed for one additional year (two additional years for students who have not received five-year GC fellowships). Futures Initiative Fellowships offer a minimum total compensation of approximately $29,374 for the academic year. The FI Fellowship has two components: a graduate assistant B appointment and a financial aid fellowship. 

The graduate assistant appointment carries eligibility to purchase low-cost NYSHIP health insurance and offers in-state tuition remission for Fellows who are within their first 10 registered semesters of study. The 2017-2024 PSC-CUNY Contract also provides in-state tuition remission at the Level 3 tuition rate for doctoral students for four additional semesters past the first 10 registered semesters of doctoral study as long as they are employed in a title recognized under Article 1 of the collective bargaining agreement

Fellows are required to work 450 hours for the academic year (225 hours per semester). This translates into 15 hours of work per week during each 15-week semester. Determinations of re-appointments are made on an annual basis depending on individual eligibility, GC needs, and available funding.
