Call for Innovation Fellows

Posted Wednesday, October 17, 2018

The REI University Center seeks to implement innovative tools, models, and policies. The Innovation Fellows program was established in 2016 to attract and support top champions in communities and organizations to tackle the tough economic development issues that our distressed communities face every day and to implement solutions. Innovation Fellows provide on-the-ground support and coordination to move concepts to actions. Innovation Fellows are often recruited by REI, its partners, Economic Development Districts (EDDs) and others interested in strengthening their local economy. If you or someone you know is an innovative thinker, a real change agent with a great project for a distressed community or region, please consider this opportunity!
