Faculty Undergraduate Scholarship

2017-2018 UM Faculty Undergraduate Scholarship Recipients 

 Rebecca Seeger from Dewitt MI, Freshman, Engineering: I am incredibly thankful that I have had the opportunity to attend the University of Michigan to study engineering. Finances have always been a concern for my family when it comes to my brother and me attending college. Without the generous financial aid I received, I don’t know if I would be able to come here. Every little bit helps and eases my mind and my family’s minds. I cannot thank you enough for choosing me to receive this scholarship. It means so much to me that I am able to pursue my dreams of working in the Biomedical Engineering industry by getting a degree at one of the best universities there is. Thank you again!

 Jenna Diegel from Macomb MI, Freshman, Engineering: Thank you so much for awarding me this scholarship. I appreciate it, because it allows me to focus on my studies rather than working a part-time job for additional income to help pay for my schooling. TI1is scholarship has allowed my parents to save the extra money for my brother’s college and for my future tuition. Thank you again for funding and awarding me this scholarship. 

Purpose: The fund will be used to provide need-based scholarships for undergraduate students.

Funded: May 28, 2007

Donors: U-M Faculty from all three campuses

Our endowment generates about $5000 per year, which is sufficient to support only one or two students per year. The goal is to be able to support up to (4) undergraduate students a year. Therefore we appeal to you for additional donations! Together we can make a difference in these students lives.

  3. Monthly payroll deduction information for setting up the deductions using Wolverine Access (the code of the fund to be entered is (571529).

The third of these methods, monthly deductions, may a bit cumbersome to set up, but maybe the least “painful” one – even $10 per month would make a big difference.

With your support, we hope to substantially increase the number of fellowships to outstanding incoming students, making a real difference in their lives.
