40 U-M students named Dow Sustainability Fellows
Date:1/17/2013

ANN ARBORForty master's and professional-degree students from eight schools and colleges at the University of Michigan are beginning the Dow Sustainability Fellows Program today, marking the first cohort of fellows in the $10 million program launched last spring.

In total, the fellows will receive $800,000 to support their studies for one year, becoming part of a collaborative community of sustainability scholars at U-M. They hail from schools and colleges throughout the university, including architecture and urban planning, art and design, business, engineering, law, natural resources and environment, public health, and public policy.

"We are thrilled to announce this first cohort of Dow Sustainability Fellows," said Donald Scavia, special counsel to the U-M president on sustainability. "To see so many different schools and colleges represented shows both the breadth of our students' talents and the multifaceted nature of global sustainability challenges."

Although hundreds of students pursued this prestigious opportunity, each U-M school and college was permitted to nominate only 10 students, which made the application process extremely competitive.

A 20-member faculty panel reviewed and scored these candidates based on their demonstrated potential for effective leadership, experience working collaboratively, relevance of prior work and interests related to sustainability, and productivity and quality of prior work.

"We went through a very rigorous nomination and review process," said Andrew Horning, acting director of U-M's Graham Sustainability Institute, which administers the fellows program on behalf of the university. "These fellows represent some of the highest-caliber interdisciplinary thinkers at the universityand, undoubtedly, some of the future sustainability leaders for our planet."

In addition to receiving a $20,000 stipend, each fellow will participate in monthly seminars and workshops,
