How can you attract and retain the best and brightest in your community? Join us as we examine how philanthropy is leveraging the reverse scholarship model to combat the "brain drain." Learn about work that's underway, early successes we are seeing, and how you can model this work in your own community. This webinar is hosted by the Council of Michigan Foundations.
