Helen and William Milliken Scholar Program

Michigan Environmental Council is pleased to announce The Helen and William Milliken Scholar Program, a competitive $6,000 internship for Michigan college students that will inspire the Great Lake State's next generation of environmental leaders.

Throughout their lives and careers, Helen Milliken and Governor William Milliken followed principle over political expediency to lead our state through difficult environmental conflicts with wisdom and foresight. In doing so, they honored and protected the water, land, fish and wildlife, and natural beauty that distinguish Michigan from all other places on Earth.

The Helen and William Milliken Scholar Program will provide an unsurpassed practical experience to Michigan college students who aspire to honor the Milliken legacy with a successful career in environmental law, policy and/or advocacy. Over time, we expect to see Milliken Scholars in top decision-making positions, leading Michigan to a healthy, sustainable and prosperous future.

Each year a Michigan college student will be selected through a competitive process. The winner will receive a $6,000 prize and complete 400 hours of service learning with the Michigan Environmental Council. Winners may complete their 400 hours of service learning during any 16-32 week span in the 12-month period following their selection.

The service learning experience will focus on a "big idea"—an innovative policy concept or cutting edge advocacy tool—that will help restore Michigan to its once-proud place as a global leader in natural resource conservation and environmental protection. Revolving around that "big idea," the internship will involve:

  • In-depth research and production of a written report that's ready to be shared with the world;
  • Intensive practice in policymaking processes and various forms of advocacy, including media communications, organizing and lobbying; and
  • Opportunities to build relationships and receive mentoring from leaders of Michigan's environmental community past and present.

The deadline to apply is January 31, 2019.
