MKE Fellows is a wonderful program to ensure that Wisconsin students studying at universities around the country have internships in Wisconsin. Many great Milwaukee-area corporate employers offer summer slots for these bright young people to return home in the hopes that they’ll return long-term after graduating. This helps prevent ‘brain drain,’ which is especially important for young people who help our corporations reflect the diversity of our communities."

The Fellowship Open
MKE Fellows was birthed as an initiative of the Fellowship Open, an annual charity golf weekend in August that has raised over 2 million dollars in funds for youth organizations around Wisconsin, including MKE Fellows. The Honorary Chairs of the Fellowship Open are strong proprietors of the MKE Fellows' vision and mission, and we receive quality candidate nominations and program support from this esteemed group of supporters.
