Engelhardt Social Justice Fellowship


The Community Leadership Fellows program (formerly known as the Engelhardt Social Justice Fellowship) through the Ginsberg Center is not currently taking applications at this time.  

The Community Leadership Fellows program is an academic year (September-April) opportunity for students and organizations to propose a mutually beneficial project. Students whose projects are selected will be paid $5,000 for ~300 hours of work with the sponsoring organization. During this program, fellows will meet for seminars on topics like professional skills, social justice activism, community-university partnerships, and potential career paths in the non-profit sector. 

Eligible Students Must:

  • Be an enrolled student in good academic standing in a degree program in UM-LSA during the time of the fellowship OR be an enrolled student at Henry Ford College, Grand Rapids Community College, or Schoolcraft College, with an intention of pursuing a bachelor's degree in the future. 
  • Co-create a project with a community organization within southeast Michigan that focuses on social justice, broadly defined.
  • Have an existing connection to that partnering community organization.
  • Be available for the full duration of the Fellowship.
