Eligibility & Program Components

Graham Sustainability Scholars participate in a variety of rich sustainability and skill-building activities. The three semester program centers on an interdisciplinary, applied team sustainability project with an external community partner. Each scholar also completes a sustainability-related field-based course and a project-based sustainability course. In addition, every cohort enjoys community- and skill-building activities like a Welcome Retreat, monthly seminars, and a final symposium to showcase their work in the program.

Program benefits include:

  • A rewarding team project that puts students in the driver's seat as sustainability professionals partnering with real-world stakeholders and serving their community.
  • $4,000 to explore sustainability locally or globally through a field-based course of your choice. Many scholars find this experience to be a highlight of their time at U-M.
  • An experiential sustainability course, such as Environment 391, that will equip you with the personal tools to act as a change agent.
  • The opportunity for a paid 6-8 week summer internship with an external organization funded by the Graham institute.
