The Southern Education Leadership Initiative (SELI) is a paid, 8-week fellowship opportunity for young leaders interested in affecting positive change for students of color and low-income students in public schools throughout the South.
SELI fellows will be placed in equity-focused nonprofits, school districts, state agencies, and higher education institutions working on substantive projects to advance the mission of their host sites. Past fellows have completed a wide array of projects ranging from policy primers to community engagement events. Eligible students are undergraduates who will have completed 60 credit hours by June 2021, as well as graduate and professional students.
More information on the program and how to apply can be found on the program website, the program overview, and in the FAQ document. If you have any questions, please reach out to the general SELI email address at email@example.com or Kenita Williams, Chief of Staff and Director of Leadership Development at firstname.lastname@example.org.
