Spearheaded by Cleveland Fed President Dr. Loretta Mester with five other Federal Reserve Banks—including the Federal Reserve Banks of Chicago, Kansas City, Richmond (Charlotte Branch), San Francisco, and Dallas—the Fed Future Professionals Program (Fed Futures) is designed to introduce and develop knowledge and awareness of careers in the financial industry.
Fed Futures combines curricula and activities created by the Federal Reserve System to provide a continuum of skill development, training, and professional mentoring that highlights career paths in finance and economics. The year-round preparatory, paid program is designed to develop a diverse pool of future interns and employee candidates in the finance and economics fields throughout the Federal Reserve System.
The program consists of three student cohorts from the Fourth Federal Reserve District (Ohio, western Pennsylvania, eastern Kentucky, and the northern panhandle of West Virginia) who will participate in
seven live virtual professional development sessions (monthly)
bi-weekly mentoring from a Bank professional throughout the program
an eight-week summer job shadowing experience
Applications are accepted annually in February and the program starts in October. For questions about this program, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
