Graham Scholars Announcement - Summer 2021 | New Junior Cohort Accepted

Wednesday, June 16, 2021

Twenty-six exceptional undergraduate students from more than a dozen majors across five schools and colleges are part of the new cohort of Graham Sustainability Scholars. These students join more than 275 alumni of the program, established in 2010 through a generous gift from benefactor Donald Graham, with support from the U-M Provost Office.

“The new cohort of Graham Scholars rose to the top of a highly competitive applicant pool,” said program manager Elizabeth LaPorte. “Their achievements and credentials are impressive, but most heartening is their clear passion for sustainability—along with some terrific ideas for sustainability solutions. We look forward to helping them advance their leadership and collaboration skills.”

Designed for junior and senior undergraduates, the Graham Sustainability Scholars Program focuses on building professional skills and collaborative mindsets. Students from all disciplines apply as sophomores and are selected to participate through a competitive review process. Program components include a funded field experience, a year-long team project for an external client, professional development workshops focused on high-demand career skills, an optional summer internship, and networking opportunities. This cohort will begin the program in September 2021 and complete it in December 2022.
