Open to students in all programs across campus, the Sustainability Scholars program provides a unique opportunity to explore interests in sustainability and develop sustainability leadership skills. In addition to the 9-credit course of study and co-curricular activities, each scholar is eligible to receive up to $3,000 to pursue a field-based experience. They can take a course offered by U-M, find one through another program, or create their own independent study project.
Students apply in January of their sophomore year, and begin the program the fall of their junior year. The deadline for applications is January 30, 2017.
