Each year the University of Michigan International Institute awards approximately $4M in grants and fellowships to support the international research and study of UM faculty and students. One of its annual funding mechanisms is the Individual Fellowship Program, a highly competitive, merit-based program open to all UM undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students enrolled in a degree program.
Fifty-two individual fellowship awards were made in 2015; four were to students in the Medical School:
