Applications for the two-year Wayne State University Detroit Revitalization Fellows program will be accepted beginning today through Feb. 20.
The program, which has awarded 48 fellowships in its two previous cohorts in 2011-13 and 2013-15, places mid-career professionals — typically with a graduate degree and 5-15 years of work experience — with civic, community and economic development organizations working on improving Detroit, according to a press release.
The fellowships are full-time salaried positions. Fellows attend monthly workshops and study trips and engage in dialogues with community leaders on key issues.
About 20 fellowships will be offered. In the last two cohorts, approximately 1,000 applications were received from applicants from across the country.
