Fellows serve full time for two years in salaried positions while engaging in rigorous leadership development, which includes monthly workshops, study trips and “Detroit Dialogues” with community leaders around key issues.

Fellows come from across the United States, and the program is especially interested in receiving applications from Detroiters already living in the city and those who have left the region and are ready to bring their talent back home.
