One of the academic requirements of the National Urban Fellows program is the development of a capstone project that is a significant and comprehensive body of work in conjunction with the nine month mentorship assignment. Fellows are assigned a professor for advisement and consultation throughout the capstone process. Capstone completion by Fellows every May represents a milestone in the fellowship program. It requires of Fellows countless hours,  endless review, attention to detail and accuracy, scholarship, exemplary writing skills and most important timely communication and collaboration with their professor.
