Congratulations to the 2016-2017 CEW Scholars & Fellows

CEW is delighted to announce the recipients of this year’s CEW Scholarships and Fellowships! The 2016-17 cohort includes fifty-three inspiring students across the Ann Arbor, Dearborn, and Flint campuses. Each award recipient was selected based on their remarkable accomplishments, their sincere commitment to academic excellence, and their potential to make a positive impact in the future.

Award recipients represent a variety of different backgrounds, nationalities, academic fields, and stages of life. Scholarship recipients and the Mary Malcomson Raphael Fellowship recipients are also nontraditional students — students who have returned to school after time away, or who serve as the primary caregiver for a minor, older adult, or disabled adult. CEW applauds these students’ resilience and profound dedication to achieving their goals.

This year, CEW has granted over $370,000 in scholarships and fellowships. The average award per student was nearly $7,000. These awards were made possible by the generosity and foresight of CEW’s extraordinary donors.


The CEW Scholarships and Fellowships Program presents merit awards on an annual basis. The application  for the 2017-18 academic year will be available December 15, 2016 and the deadline to submit an application Is February 15, 2017.

The 2016-17 CEW Scholars and Fellows will be honored at an awards ceremony in Ann Arbor on October 2nd, 2016. Please join us in congratulating each of these talented and promising students!
