Hackny_logo_smallI am a huge fan of hackNY.   They are really trying to create opportunities for the next generation of hackers in NYC. Check out their fellowship opportunity below.  I believe we will see a lot more innovative programs coming from hackNy over the next year to come. 

Attention awesome NYC startups: hackNY is pleased to announce
applications are now open for hosting one of NYC’s next generation of
talented developers and engineers: the class of 2012 hackNY Fellows.
Please submit applications before 11:59 pm NYC time Wednesday February
29 via http://hackNY.org/a/startups.

The hackNY Fellows program, now entering its third year, is an intense
program designed to introduce students to NYC’s startup ecosystem by
pairing the best technical minds with great New York startups.  The
hackNY Fellows program is a paid summer internship program at NYC
startups, which provides housing as well as a pedagogical lecture
series covering all aspects of founding or joining a tech startup. The
2012 class will be the third year of hackNY Fellows. Previous fellows
have come from all over the US and Canada, majoring in a variety of
subjects. Last year we hosted a class (http://bit.ly/hackNY2011s) of
awesome student-hackers, who spent 10 weeks working with some great
NYC startups and learning all the things they won’t learn in a
traditional curriculum about joining and founding a startup. Don’t
take our word for it though: please watch the video created by the
class of 2011 hackNY Fellows and the video of the  end of the summer
