Scholarships & Grants

Interview Day

There’s no separate application to apply for U-M scholarships and grants.

Scholarships range from a few hundred dollars to full tuition. This type of funding is generally merit-based and does not have to be repaid. Applicants will learn about scholarship opportunities during Interview Days.

One program of note is the Dean's Merit Scholarship, a full tuition award given for outstanding potential for leadership in medicine. About 10 of these awards are made each year to incoming students.

Other types of scholarships may be awarded based on financial need, demographic factors and/or an excellent evaluation by the Admissions Committee. About one-third of our entering students receive some type of scholarship.

We also offer need-based grant funds. We’ll consider your eligibility for these based on the information you submit on the FAFSA. University Grants in Aid do not have to be repaid.

You can also search for and apply for scholarships offered beyond the University of Michigan.
