The Kresge Foundation is metro Detroit’s largest private, national foundation, with more than $3.6 billion in its endowment, a growing staff of over 100 employees and a mission to expand opportunities in America’s cities for low-income people. We do this through grant making and social investing nationally in arts and culture, education, environment, health, human services, as well as community development in Detroit.
Kresge’s Education Team focuses on helping low-income and students of color enter and succeed in undergraduate education. You can learn more about the program at http://kresge.org/programs/education.
The Summer Fellow will be integrated into the team and, by working closely with Kresge staff members, will experience what it’s like to be a program staff member at a foundation. This will include meeting with prospective applicants and current grantees, reviewing letters of inquiry and proposals, conducting due diligence on nonprofit organizations, participating in team review discussions, and assisting with various research and analysis projects. The Fellow will have the opportunity to be exposed to the work of many of Kresge’s grantees in the college access and success field as well as explore opportunities for interdisciplinary partnerships across the Kresge program teams.
Please submit a cover letter, resume, a letter of recommendation (ideally by a former supervisor or faculty member with whom you have worked closely) and two references by January 19, 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
