Made possible by The Dow Chemical Company Foundation, the Dow Sustainability Fellows Program at the University of Michigan supports full-time graduate students at the university who are committed to finding interdisciplinary, actionable, and meaningful sustainability solutions on local-to-global scales. The program aspires to prepare future sustainability leaders to make a positive difference in organizations worldwide.
The diverse array of fellows brings together many relevant interests, with a program focus on areas around sustainable food systems, sustainable cities, sustainable infrastructure, sustainable mobility, sustainable consumption (resource use), and sustainable energy systems. The program comprises master’s/professional and doctoral degree fellows who 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 impact on local-to-global scales.
