Wayne State's Detroit Revitalization Fellows program to open application process
Wayne State University's Detroit Revitalization Fellows will accept applications for its two-year program Jan. 23.-Feb. 10. Detroit Revitalization Fellows will hire 20 mid-career leaders and match them with civic, community and economic development organizations engaged in the city's comeback. Participants will receive a full-time position, with salary, and leadership development training. The goal is to enhance the city's talent pool while advancing institutions that stimulate Detroit. A total of 67 fellows have completed the program since its inception in 2011. Past fellows have worked on numerous projects in the city. The program receives support from the Kresge Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Hudson-Webber Foundation, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Skillman Foundation, the DTE Energy Foundation, the Max M. & Marjorie S. Fisher Foundation, the PricewaterhouseCoopers Charitable Foundation, the Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Family Foundation, Rock Ventures and Wayne State University.
