The Chick Evans scholarship covers the full cost of tuition and housing, over $80,000. Evans scholars are golf caddies who were selected based on four criteria: a strong caddie record, excellent academics, financial need and outstanding character.

The $40,000 LSA scholarship is based on academic talent and motivation, personal achievement, extracurricular activities, state and/or national awards, community service, leadership qualities, and academic potential. Essays and counselor and teacher recommendations are also significant factors in the review process.

Top high school seniors are selected to receive the $1,500 Regents Merit Scholarship for outstanding academic achievement, scholarly promise and potential contribution to the University of Michigan community.

The $20,000 KFC Colonel’s scholars are selected for entrepreneurial drive, strong perseverance, financial need and commitment to both their education and enriching their communities.

The $14,000 Grand Rapids U of M Alumni Club scholarship is part of the largest scholarship program of its type sponsored by an alumni club for any university in the United States. In addition to meeting academic qualifications, students must demonstrate financial need and outstanding citizenship.
