As part of a groundbreaking effort among higher education institutions statewide, the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts is launching a new cohort-based scholarship program for students from the Upper Peninsula who are considering attending the University of Michigan.
The U.P. Scholars Program will provide wrap-around financial, academic, professional, and social support for students.
There are currently more than 100 students in LSA from the U.P., and approximately 230 students total at U-M. The U.P. Scholars Program sets out to increase those numbers and bring more students from the region to Ann Arbor. The initiative is also designed to break down some of the obstacles students face and misconceptions they may have about campus life at U-M.
The inaugural cohort will start in fall 2020.
