Fall 2018 Community and Economic Development Fellowship

Our staff at the Center for Community and Economic Development is excited to share that undergraduate students Hawa Nouhou Abarchi of Niamey, Niger, and Margaret (Greta) Hacker of Jonesboro, Arkansas, have been selected for the fall Community and Economic Development (CED) Fellowship! The fellowship seeks to expose students to a variety of community and economic development careers while enhancing career preparedness through networking, coaching and mentoring. The program allows fellows to participate in site visits to showcase community and economic development at the local and state levels of government and in the nonprofit sector.

Fellows engage in activities customized to their needs and interests such as job shadowing, organization tours and mock interviews. Fellows will have the opportunity to join the Arkansas Community Development Society and attend the 2019 Community Development Institute.

The fellowship will run through November with site visits to organizations including the Arkansas Bureau of Legislative Research, Arkansas Community Foundation, Arkansas Farm Bureau, Goodwill Industries of Arkansas, Heifer International and Winrock International. Our team looks forward to working closely with Hawa and Greta throughout the fall 2018 semester (and beyond)!
