Rackham Public Engagement Fellowships

Applications are due Feb. 26! 

From their website:

Previously funded by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Rackham Public Engagement Fellowships provide Rackham students exciting opportunities to intern at cultural, nonprofit, and educational organizations on campus, in Ann Arbor, and in nearby communities like Detroit.

The goals of these fellowships are to connect graduate students’ knowledge to opportunities for impact outside the classroom, to advance mutually beneficial projects with partner organizations that serve diverse public audiences, and to assist students in exploring diverse career paths.

Experience working in diverse career settings can enhance students’ research and make them more competitive for positions inside and outside academia, improving their professional adaptability for a range of positions and roles. Each position provides skills to position students for future success as junior faculty members and emerging professionals within and beyond higher education, with a commitment public engagement.


Please read the application instructions thoroughly before starting the application. The application deadline is February 26, 2018.
