U-M CEW+
GETTING STARTED

Congratulations to the 2022-23 CEW+ Scholars

CEW+ is pleased to welcome the 2022-23 cohort of 80 scholarship recipients and 14 graduate fellows to the CEW+ Scholar community. Thanks to the generous support of individuals, organizations, clubs, and foundations, CEW+ awarded over $580,000 in scholarship funds and over $48,000 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 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 2022-23 CEW+ Scholar Community inductees include 26 doctoral students, 43 master’s students, and 25 undergraduate students, 80 of whom are studying on the Ann Arbor campus. We proudly support 13 additional students at UM-Dearborn and one scholar at UM-Flint. This year’s scholarship awards range from $1,000 to $11,00 to cover tuition and living expenses, with fellowships from $ 2,000 to $6,200 to support research and travel. The average award amount for a 2022-23 CEW+ Scholar is over $7,000. 

The 2022-23 CEW+ Scholars and Fellows will be honored at an award ceremony and luncheon on Sunday, November 6th in the Rogel Ballroom of the Michigan Union. Please join us in congratulating these talented and promising students! RSVP here to join the event.
