Organizations and agencies serve neighborhoods best when community representatives are part of their leadership and decision-making. The Charles R. Krusell Fellowship is designed to increase the number of highly trained community development professionals from historically underrepresented communities and to provide hands-on work experience to ensure students are prepared to meet the challenges of the evolving community development field.
Krusell Fellows receive full tuition support and graduate research assistantships with community development or planning agencies. The program is a partnership between CURA and the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. Students applying for the Master of Urban and Regional Planning and Master of Public Policy programs are eligible to apply.
