Congratulations to the 2020-21 CEW+ Scholars

CEW+ is pleased to welcome the 2020-21 cohort of 79 Scholars to the CEW+ Scholar community. Thanks to the generous support of individuals, organizations, clubs, and foundations, this year marks our largest total to date: over $570,000 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, students who are underrepresented in STEM fields, 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 2020-21 Scholars include 19 doctoral students, 35 master’s students, and 25 undergraduate students, 68 of whom are studying on the Ann Arbor campus. We proudly support 8 additional students at UM-Dearborn, and 3 at UM-Flint. This year’s awards range from $1,000 to $11,500 to cover the cost of tuition and living expenses, with Mary Malcomson Raphael Scholarships for nominated doctoral students ranging from $7,000-$18,000. The average award amount for a 2019-20 CEW+ Scholar is over $7,250.

The 2020-21 CEW+ Scholars were honored at a series of virtual award ceremonies earlier this year. Please join us in congratulating each of these talented and promising students!
