ICI's Minnesota Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities Program (MN LEND) is recruiting its cohort of LEND Fellows for 2017-18. The deadline is November 15, 2016. This year-long interdisciplinary leadership program uses evidence-based research and practices to train new leaders to help improve access and equity for children and young adults with neurodevelopmental disabilities (NDDs), such as autism and other related disabilities. LEND Fellows receive a stipend, national networking and travel opportunities, and lifelong interdisciplinary connections. UMN-TC graduate students, post doctorates, outside community professionals, family members, and self-advocates who demonstrate leadership potential and hands-on experience in NDDs are all welcome. Future leaders from under-represented communities are especially encouraged to apply. For further information about how to apply, visit 2017-18 LEND Fellowship Application page.
