The City Fellowships are highly competitive, merit-based fellowships with the goals of: enabling outstanding young American minority financial service professionals to go to the City of London to get high level work experience of global capital markets with Goldman Sachs International and to study global finance through Goldman’s own Finance University; and to strengthen the links between the new generation in the City of London and Wall Street.
The City Fellowship, an operating program of the Philadelphia Foundation, is funded by Goldman Sachs as well as private donations. The unique fellowships have been described by “Black Enterprise” as one of America’s most “fabulous fellowships.”
Fellow Nicole Clark, a member of the class of 2009, wrote to Dr. Raymond: “The vision and leadership that you have shown are extraordinary. You have helped so many people like me live their dream – not many people can genuinely say that. I am grateful to have you in my corner as I make my journey.”
Raymond, a Lagrangeville resident teaches American history and American government, including honors classes, at SUNY Ulster. He is the director of the college’s Institute for Constitutional Studies. A member of The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, he spent 20 years in the diplomatic service of the United Kingdom and has advised British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s chief of staff and senior policy adviser on American politics and public policy, including the role of community colleges in U.S. higher education.
