A cold day in a hot town: 2011 Sleight Leadership Fellows in Detroit.
The Sleight Leadership Fellows Program provides an intense leadership skills enhancement experience for Albion College sophomores. The program consists of a five-day, in-residence program that immerses students in cutting-edge leadership models and experiences through classwork, hands-on learning, and small work-group projects. The Sleight Program provides a curricular component to leadership training at Albion College with the specific intent of enhancing personal skills. The benefit, however, reaches beyond the participants as Sleight Fellows share their skills with their peers, in and out of the classroom.
The theme of each year's Sleight Leadership Fellows Program will reflect a different topic. The program for 2009 was titled "Leadership in a Challenging Environment." For 2012, the program focused on urban redevelopment by using Detroit as a natural learning laboratory. The program was entitled "Leadership and the Re-emergence of Detroit."

The Sharon 'Zo' Gates Rees, '53 Fellowship for Women in Public Office
Through the generous support of Sharon Rees, a 1953 alumnus of Albion College, we are proud to announce the annual Sharon "Zo" Gates Rees, '53 Fellowship for Women in Public Office. This program promotes the interest of women seeking elected office and makes available to them the knowledge of how to achieve their goals. To this end, the fellowship will support internships in the U.S. House or Senate that provide women students the experience to better understand the processes of becoming elected to and holding public office.
Applications are encouraged from Albion students who plan to intern in Washington, D.C., during the summer. One award in the amount of $1,000 is given annually following a competitive review of all proposals received. The Fellowship may be used to offset housing or other expenses associated with living in Washington, D.C., during the internship period.
Early in the spring semester of each year, an application will be available online to download. Applications may also be picked up at the Ford Institute office, located at 201 Robinson Hall.
