The Ford School is delighted to announce a pilot fellowship—the Riecker Michigan Delegation Fellowship—that will send one competitively selected graduate student to Washington, DC to complete a six-month assignment in the office of a senator or representative from the Michigan delegation. The first fellowship will be hosted by U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, the ranking member of the Michigan delegation.
The Riecker Michigan Delegation Fellowship is named for Margaret (Ranny) Riecker, a longtime friend and generous benefactor of the Ford School. The fellowship opportunity is open to students who have completed one year of Ford School coursework and the required policy-relevant internship.
To learn more about the fellowship and to apply, please register to attend one of two information sessions this September:
- Monday, September 14 at 4:00 p.m., Joan and Sanford Weill Hall, Room 2215
- Friday, September 25 at noon, Joan and Sanford Weill Hall, Room 2215
Applications will be due by September 30, 2015 and we expect to select the first fellow by the end of October. For more detail related to the fellowship, the application process, and the timing, print the fellowship overview.
