The Louis Stokes Fellowship in Community Development

Cities across America are in desperate need of community development professionals to take on the myriad challenges that define the quality of people's lives.

The Mandel School of Applied Social Services at Case Western Reserve University addresses these challenges through The Louis Stokes Fellowship in Community Development.

The fellowship encourages working minority professionals to seek the education and leadership tools they need to make a real, lasting impact on their communities.

Case Western Reserve has launched a major endowment initiative to support the Stokes Fellowship in perpetuity, educating a pipeline of stellar community development leaders for decades to come.

If you would like to learn more about giving to this endowment, please contact the Office of Development and External Affairs at the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences at 216-368-2311. For information on corporate giving, please contact the Office of Corporate Relations at 216.368.0336.
