Awards & Internships
The Graham Institute encourages students to be as knowledgeable as possible about environmental sustainability issues ... and how to address them. With this in mind, the Institute offers, co-sponsors, and promotes a variety of scholarships, grants, incentives programs, and other initiatives to help empower and support students in their environmental-sustainability pursuits. Here are examples of student-support activities and opportunities:
- Dow Sustainability Innovation Student Challenge: We oversee the Dow Sustainability Innovation Student Challenge Award (SISCA), an academic-incentive program, which offers a cash prize of up to $10,000 to a graduate student or student team with the most innovative idea for sustainability.
- Small-Scale Grants: The Student Sustainability Intiative (SSI) oversees a small-scale grantprogram dedicated solely to funding and supporting student environmental sustainbility projects at U-M.
- Robert and Judy Marans/Kan and Lillian Chen Fellowship in Sustainability and Survey Methodology: This is an opportunity for a first-year, U-M graduate student to earn a Certificate in Survey Methodology from the Institute for Social Research (ISR) Program in Survey Methodology. Fellowship support is given to a student who demonstrates a strong commitment to fostering sustainability using social science research methods in combination with creativity and other disciplinary technical skills.
