CEE Student selected for Graham Doctoral Fellowship Program

Each year, the Graham Institute competitively selects and admits a small number of doctoral students into the Graham Doctoral Fellowship Program. Applicants are reviewed by a strict set of criteria and considered only if their doctoral research projects are related to environmental sustainability. As a recipient of this honor, each Graham Fellow receives $25,000 per year for two years to help support their doctoral-level research and studies. The Fellowship Program also fosters interdisciplinary academic collaboration and creates a “Community of Scholars” to enrich the student’s doctoral studies. This year thirty-five candidates were nominated by U-M faculty members and only seven were admitted into the program. Research proposals were judged on their potential for scholarly and practical impact, the degree of cross-disciplinary focus, and probability of success. Sherri’s research topic is, “Waste Resource Recovery System Sustainability: Performance & Reliability of Codigestion”. Her advisor is Professor Nancy Love.
