Applications Closed: Wallace Blogging Fellows


Announcing: UMS Wallace Blogging Fellowships

Applications were due July 18, 2016. We’ll announce the fellows this fall.

UMS is pleased to announce a new blogging fellowship program.

In an effort to elevate great cultural happenings in Southeast Michigan, we’ve created two new blogging fellow positions geared towards exposing UMS audiences to adventurous arts and cultural opportunities in the area.

Fellows will serve as curators who make monthly recommendations about events throughout Southeast Michigan, whether presented by UMS or by other organizations. Recommendations will be shared via UMS Lobby (our blog), email, and social media campaigns. Fellows will also be asked to participate in select UMS education and community engagement activities with university and community. The fellowship period takes place from September 2016 to April 2017.

Fellows will receive $1,000 and opportunities for special behind-the-scenes access to UMS and artists, based on fellow and artist availability and interest.
