During the next six years, the Dow Chemical Company will invest $10 million at the University of Michigan to create the Dow Sustainability Fellows Program. The goal is to attract the world’s best advanced degree candidates in the natural and social sciences, engineering, business, law, and more.
Some 300 fellows will be able to explore today’s most pressing sustainability challenges—human behavior, energy, water, mobility, and land use, to name a few.
The Dow Sustainability Fellows Program will be broad-based and multidisciplinary, spanning the University. By creating critical mass in scholarship through this unique partnership with Dow, U-M President Mary Sue Coleman hopes to force a “seismic shift” in research breakthroughs.
