Once per year, we invite Fellows to apply for our most exclusive program, the Advanced Fellows Program. Committed BLI Fellows who seek to deepen their leadership learning will be admitted to our Advanced Fellows Program. Our most dedicated students will play active parts in all aspects of the BLI community and will have additional opportunities to develop their leadership skills. We will deepen their commitment to each other and to the BLI through a weekend-long intensive retreat open only to new and continuing Advanced Fellows. In addition to playing leadership roles in the program and pursuing funding opportunities, Advanced Fellows will benefit from intensive, individualized leadership coaching that will help them craft a personal leadership plan that integrates all aspects of their Michigan education. Pursuing this plan from the platform offered by BLI will lead them to develop impressive, integrated skills to turn their intellectual and personal passions toward effective action wherever their post-college careers take them.
