Ford School names DeLeeuw and McIntyre as its third annual Bohnett Public Service Fellows
Incoming MPP candidates Andrew DeLeeuw and Adrianna McIntyre have been named the 2013 recipients of the David Bohnett Foundation Leadership and Public Service Fellowship.
DeLeeuw and McIntyre will have their in-state tuition covered for two years and a 2013 summer internship with a leading group executive within the City of Detroit's Mayor's Office, which includes a $6,000 stipend.
DeLeeuw joins the Ford School after serving as a senior program manager for City Year Detroit, an AmeriCorps program that provides in-school and after-school tutoring and extracurricular programing to help K-12 students in Detroit schools thrive academically and socially. Prior to joining City Year six years ago, Andrew graduated from Michigan State University with degrees in philosophy and English.
McIntyre received her BS in cognitive science from the University of Michigan in 2011, and currently facilitates clinical research regulation at Children's Hospital of Michigan and the Wayne State University School of Medicine. She also has participated in behavioral research on high-risk youth in the Bahamas. Adrianna is interested in health care policy and the regulation of emerging technologies.
This is the third year the David Bohnett Foundation has partnered with the Ford School to provide this fellowship. David Bohnett is a University of Michigan alumnus (MBA '80). The foundation that bears his name is committed to improving society through social activism.
"We are excited about our partnership with the Ford School, to help provide much needed human capital to address our urban challenges," said Bohnett, announcing the fellowship in 2010. "The students who participate in these programs have the opportunity to improve local communities and learn from significant assignments in the public sector."
