Text-based announcement of Engelhardt Social Justice Fellowship

Apply for $5,000 fellowship by March 19

The University of Michigan's office of Community-Engaged Academic Learning (CEAL) invites applications from Henry Ford College students who have worked or are currently working with a local organization (school, NGO, community center, reentry program, etc.) that is dedicated to social justice, broadly defined.

Students often develop partnerships with local organizations through community-based learning courses, internships, or volunteering, but many are unable to continue that work during the summer. The Engelhardt Social Justice Fellowship (ESJF) addresses this issue of sustainability by offering an opportunity for students and organizations to continue their work together into the summer.

This year the ESJF will support up to 10 students who propose projects that center around capacity-building, direct service, or the implementation of a new or pilot initiative with an organization where they have existing relationships. The fellowship will run from April 30 until June 22.

Engelhardt Fellows will receive a stipend of $5,000 for their work, gain valuable work experience, collaborate with other fellows, and receive professional development training.

For more information about eligibility requirements and the parameters of the fellowship, visit the CEAL website. The deadline has for Henry Ford College students is March 19!
