The Dow Sustainability Fellows Program at the University of Michigan (U-M), made possible by Dow and U-M, 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. Dow Fellows focus on the following sustainability areas: Infrastructure, Cities, Mobility, Energy Systems, Consumption, and Food Systems.

The diverse array of fellows brings together many relevant interests. The program comprises masters and doctoral degree fellows who engage with one another, thrive on collaboration, learn to employ interdisciplinary thinking, experience diverse stakeholder perspectives, and implement initiatives with significant potential for impact on local-to-global scales.
