Freshman merit scholarship program expanded
The University of Michigan-Flint is making a major investment to attract the best and brightest students. Top high school students now will be automatically eligible for scholarships ranging from $3,000 to $7,000 a year (all are renewable for four years) as part of the expansion of the Freshmen Merit Scholarship program being implemented for incoming freshmen in 2016. In addition, 10 full-ride scholarships are available to highly competitive applicants.
The University of Michigan-Flint estimates that it will offer more than $9 million in its first year. To be eligible for one of the scholarships, students must have at least a 3.25 grade point average and score at least a 24 on the ACT.
“We know that scholarship dollars can make a critical difference for students and their families when choosing a college.”
