Congratulations to the 2017-2018 CEW Scholars & Fellow

CEW is pleased to welcome the 2017-18 cohort of 56 Scholars and one Mary Malcomson Raphael Fellow to the Scholar community. Thanks to the generous support of individuals, organizations, clubs, and foundations, this year marks our largest total to date: nearly $375,000 awarded to these resilient and determined agents of change.

Among them are student parents and primary caregivers, students who are returning to the classroom after a prolonged interruption, first generation and international students, and students who have overcome great obstacles in order to achieve their dream of earning a degree in higher education. These individuals were selected through a highly competitive process as leaders with great potential to make a significant impact in their field.

Our 2017-18 Scholars include 11 doctoral students, 33 master’s students, and 13 undergraduate students, 43 of whom are studying on the Ann Arbor campus. We proudly support 7 additional students at UM-Dearborn, and 7 at UM-Flint. This year's awards range anywhere from $1,000 to $35,000 to cover cost of tuition and living expenses, with an average award of over $6,500.
