MITN Fellowships

One of our initiatives is to promote the growth of skilled IT workers in this region. Continued education and investment in new skills is key to personal and professional development. With this in mind, we offer the MITN Fellowship.

MITN is working with four of our member organizations, Lansing Community College, Michigan State University, New Horizons Learning Center and Career Quest for this fellowship.  Selected recipients may use their fellowship award for an IT related class at their preferred institution participating in the program.

Up to two recipients will be awarded a fellowship annually.
