Now in its second year, Wolverine Pathways is working with students in Ypsilanti, Southfield and Detroit to make a U-M education more accessible to historically underrepresented communities. Among all three districts there are more than 400 students.
The program is offered at no cost to students and families. Each student who successfully completes the Wolverine Pathways program, applies to U-M and is admitted will be awarded a full-tuition scholarship for four years, a $60,000 value.
“The program is paramount to the university’s dedication to becoming more accessible and providing opportunities to students in communities that are historically underrepresented on campus,” said Robert Sellers, vice provost for equity and inclusion and chief diversity officer.
