Call for Applications


The Dow Sustainability Fellows Program is currently seeking applications from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor campus) doctoral candidates who are eager to join a community of scholars devoted to developing and implementing innovative ideas in pursuit of sustainability. Dow Doctoral Fellows come from academic departments throughout the university and seek to become sustainability leaders in academia, business, government, and non-governmental organizations.

As a recipient of this honor, each Dow Doctoral Fellow receives up to $15,000 to help support doctoral-level research and studies for one year (January 1st – December 31st). Fellows engage in monthly seminars, workshops, roundtable discussions, and related activities to share and expand research perspectives and facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration.
