The Detroit Initiative has several projects that employ students eligible for Work-Study. Some of these projects are research based, and others are geared toward service learning. Either way, the Detroit Initiative work-study positions are challenging, interesting, and fun. UM-DI work-study opportunities are changing all the time, but in the past students have worked with community technology projects, on community based research projects, and assisted with administrative aspects of the UM-DI.
Please see the the Research and Projects section for examples of work of Detroit Initiative students.
