This highly competitive undergraduate program engages exceptional students from across the University. Graham Scholars participate in a two-year sequence of cohort building activities focused on systems thinking, action-based learning, and leadership development for sustainability. Scholars also receive funding to participate in field-based sustainability courses at locations throughout the world.
On behalf of the U-M Provost, we administer this University-wide program to cultivate sustainability leaders, and make a positive difference in organizations worldwide. The program supports fellows at the master’s/professional, doctoral, and postdoctoral levels. Fellows engage with one another within and across cohorts, thrive on collaboration, learn to employ interdisciplinary thinking, experience diverse stakeholder perspectives, and implement projects with significant potential for positive impact.
