U-M CEW+
GETTING STARTED

Congratulations to the 2021-22 CEW+ Scholars

CEW+ is pleased to welcome the 2021-22 cohort of 85 scholarship recipients and 10 graduate fellows to the CEW+ Scholar community. Thanks to the generous support of individuals, organizations, clubs, and foundations, CEW+ awarded over $530,000 in scholarship funds and over $41,000 in fellowship funds to these resilient and determined agents of change.

Among the current class of scholarship recipients 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. CEW+ fellows are engaged in research of importance to women, researching or traveling abroad while completing a health degree, or working to remove barriers impacting advocates and allies striving for social change. These individuals were selected through a highly competitive process as leaders with great potential to make a significant impact in their field.

Our 2021-22 CEW+ Scholar Community inductees include 21 doctoral students, 47 master’s students, and 27 undergraduate students, 77 of whom are studying on the Ann Arbor campus. We proudly support 13 additional students at UM-Dearborn, and 5 at UM-Flint. This year’s scholarship awards range from $1,000 to $11,00 to cover the cost of tuition and living expenses, with fellowships from $2,000 to $5,000 to support research and travel. The average award amount for a 2021-22 CEW+ Scholar is over $6,000.

The 2021-22 CEW+ Scholars and Fellows will be honored at a series of virtual award ceremonies in November. Please join us in congratulating these talented and promising students! RSVP here for the events.
