The Groundwork Center for Resilient Communities offers three fellowship cycles: Fall (September-December), Spring (February-May), and Summer (June-August) in Traverse City, Michigan, in addition to some remote opportunities.
Groundwork Fellows will complete projects alongside our policy staff, attend conferences and networking sessions, and receive professional development training. Each fellow will complete an independent project to complement Groundwork’s program areas based on their area of expertise, and present this project to conclude their term. The Groundwork fellowship program aims to address key issue areas in our community and showcase cross-program understanding of community resiliency. As a fellow, you will focus on your individual program area while benefiting from a dynamic, supportive professional community addressing a variety of issues.
Successful fellowship applicants will be awarded a competitive stipend in addition to assistance with housing and unique opportunities in our local community. A minimum of 25-35 hours per week is required for summer fellowships. 15-25 hours per week is required for fall and spring fellowships. Depending on the institution, current students may be eligible to earn academic credit.
While there are no current fellowship opportunities. Check back soon for information on our upcoming Fall and Spring terms.
