Innovation Fellows Due Date Extended to Friday
New Due Date for Applications is January 19th, 2018
The Innovation Fellows
Program seeks to incorporate the tools, models, and policies identified
in Co-Learning Projects into practice in communities around Michigan.
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. Innovation Fellows provide on-the-ground support and
coordination to move concepts to actions, implementing new economic
development tools, models, and policies. Innovation Fellows, recruited
by REI, its partners, Economic Development Districts (EDDs), and past
Co-Learning Project leaders will identify recommendations in past
Co-Learning Projects to serve as current and practical information for
local and state economic development practitioners and policymakers as
they consider important decisions for Michigan communities and regions.
Fellows are funded through a competitive award process to which only
serious, dedicated individuals should apply. The Submit an Application page to apply for funding is open now!
