Sponsor a Fellow - 2020-2021

by Diverse Influencers, Inc.


Would you like to help a freshman/sophomore in college build the foundation to set them up for success in their future career? If so, please consider sponsoring a student apart of Diverse Influencers!

Our mission is to empower CUNY (City University of New York) freshmen and sophomores to launch their careers in business and technology fields.  We provide an academic year-long fellowship program consisting of bi-weekly workshops, mentorship, and networking events. DI primarily focuses on students pursuing careers in business or tech.

This year, we recruited a cohort of 38 fellows! With a lot of pride, we are proud to say that 71% are women and 74% are first generation college students. Our fellows are talented freshmen and sophomores from seven CUNYs (Baruch, City, Hunter, Brooklyn, Lehman, Queens, and BMCC).

If you are looking to have a direct impact on our fellows from afar, we ask you to kindly consider sponsoring a fellow for $50! 

By sponsoring a fellow, your $50 will go towards providing one fellow with: 

  • A padfolio, pens, resume paper, and notepads to use for future professional events and job interviews 
  • Professional headshot for their LinkedIn profile to help improve their online personal brand 
  • A DI t-shirt as a welcoming gift into the DI community

As a sponsor, you will receive the following:

  • Personalized thank you letter from the co-founders 
  • End of semester video updates from our fellows for both the fall and spring semesters
  • *Exclusive* invitation to watch our fellows present their end-of-year group projects in May 2021 

Fellows benefit from your sponsorship by being provided the necessary tools in their internship search and professional networking outreach. Help us make a difference with your sponsorship!
