Doctoral Fellows Program
Since 2006, the Graham Doctoral Fellows program has brought together and supported nearly 50 Ph.D. students from 19 distinct disciplines across eight U-M schools and colleges. These future thought leaders have learned to converse and collaborate across disciplines to broaden their perspectives and strengthen the relevance and impact of their work.
We are now building on this legacy by adding comparable offerings at the masters and postdoctoral levels, as well as by rebranding and expanding our existing two-year doctoral fellowship program. Collectively, this three-part University of Michigan Dow Sustainability Fellows program will develop nearly 300 sustainability leaders over the next six years and facilitate innovative project-based collaborations across academic levels and disciplines.
"The Graham Doctoral Fellowship has created a 'community of scholars' through which exeptional Ph.D. students have collaborated, engaged, and interacted with each other about interdisciplinary issues related to sustainability," says Graham Institute Director Don Scavia. "We are grateful to be broadening and strengthening such interdisciplinary scholarly exchange through the new Dow Sustainability Fellows program."
