Special Needs Program

The University of Michigan Medical School has limited funds available for special financial needs of students, over and above the standard budgeted expenses, including:

In order to be considered eligible for Special Needs Funds, students must first have submitted a financial aid application for the year in which funds are being requested.  Students are required to provide parental information on financial forms for eligibility determination.  Information provided on the financial aid forms will assist us in determining eligibility for special needs funds in the form of grants and/or loans.  The only exception to this policy is for the Research Presentation Award.

Applications should be submitted complete with all appropriate documentation attached to be considered.  Applicants will be notified of decisions by email. Any questions, comments or concerns relating to the Special Needs Program should be directed  to the Medical School Financial Aid Office at medfinaid@umich.edu.
