I am very interested in ethical foundation work — funders creating safe, respectful, equitable relationships with grantees — and in corporate social responsibility, helping organizations and people with money to do significant good.
The Jewish Communal Leadership program stood out to me. Michigan is the top social work school in the country, so it was a no-brainer. Who wouldn’t want to come here, given the faculty and resources? But I would not have come if I had not been able to grow as a Jewish community professional.
Rita Specter Gelman Scholarship
The Rita Specter Gelman Scholarship allowed me to attend this school that is so well regarded. The School has many resources and I am able to work toward my long-term goals. I can dive into many different courses and get all sides of what social work can be — this is unique to the program at U-M — and I have an extraordinary field placement.
