Meet Our 2023 SELI Fellows
The Southern Education Leadership Initiative (SELI) provides young leaders with hands-on experience supporting organizations working to create school systems that give Black and Brown children access to the educational opportunity they deserve. In 2023, 12 stellar candidates rose to the top of the competitive applicant pool. The 2023 cohort of exceptional young leaders represent 10 schools across the nation, including two Historically Black Colleges and Universities. During their fellowship, these SELI fellows worked in nonprofits, state agencies, school districts, and universities on issues of education equity. They learned about the South’s most pressing education issues and grow as change agents for social justice.
