The University of Michigan-Flint continued its nationally recognized efforts to serve returning military veterans in 2012 with the establishment of new scholarship funding. Recognizing the need to provide assistance to student veterans, the university has directed funds from the State of Michigan university license plate sales to contribute to the Student Veteran’s Scholarship Fund. The determination of awards is based upon financial need, with the level of individual G.I. Bill benefits taken into account. A new UM-Flint license plate from the State of Michigan costs $35 plus the standard registration fee.
