Community-Based Initiative Program

Application Deadlines:

  • Early Application: December 1
  • Priority Application: February 1
  • Final: March 1

As one of our Community Scholars Programs, the purpose of the Community-Based Initiative in Detroit (CBI) is to train and support a new generation of social workers dedicated to community and social change in urban cities, neighborhoods, and communities. This is done through coursework and field placements based in Detroit and surrounding areas including Highland Park, Hamtramck, and Dearborn. Upon graduation, CBI scholars work as community organizers, policymakers, program planners, organization managers and administrators, evaluators, and foundation staff within Michigan, the US, and internationally. A maximum of 12 incoming students who are genuinely committed to community-based work in urban areas will be selected for the CBI program.
