Thank you for your interest in applying to be a part of the 2022 Cohort DEAL Fellowship. The application opens Monday, May 16, 2022, and closes Friday, June 10, 2022 at 11:59 pm. The fellowship will launch in September 2022.

At the Detroit Equity Action Lab (DEAL), we develop leaders who work to end structural racism. We equip leaders with tools to disrupt racism and create equitable alternatives in culture, policy, and practice in Detroit.

Through our Racial Equity Fellowship, we bring together people and organizations working in many dimensions of racial equity, including the arts and media, community development, education, environment, food security, health care, and housing. Together, they develop a shared analysis of structural racism and white supremacy to build a tool kit for creating equitable alternatives.

Who can apply?

  • We welcome emerging and experienced leaders with a deep commitment to racial equity from all of Detroit's ethnic and racial groups, gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, and backgrounds.
  • Applicants from groups and organizations working in a wide variety of sectors and various levels of budgets and experience, from volunteer-based organizations to non-profits and beyond, are welcome to apply.
  • We accept applicants who live or work in Detroit.
