There is no separate application to apply for U-M scholarships and grants. By submitting your FAFSA and UMMS Financial Aid application, we will consider your eligibility for these programs. Your financial situation and your need level is important to us. UMMS practices need-blind admissions, and we work hard to make sure medical school is affordable to all students.
Scholarships range from a few hundred dollars to full tuition and housing. This type of funding does not have to be repaid. Applicants will learn about scholarship opportunities during their 24 Hours in Blue Interview Days.
Two programs of note fall under the purview of Admissions: the Dean's scholarships and Michigan Innovation & Medicine (MI MED) scholarships.
Dean’s scholarships are awarded to candidates with outstanding potential for leadership in academic medicine. This award offers funding for all four years of medical school plus funding to cover the cost of an additional/dual degree year at a University of Michigan graduate school.
MI MED scholarships encourage interprofessional relationships across disciplines between physicians-in-training and other graduate trainees. This award covers the cost of four years of medical school training plus additional funding to live at Munger Graduate Residences. All MI MED scholars are expected to interact and create interprofessional programs with students from the other U-M graduate schools.
Other types of scholarships, including department- and donor-sponsored, may be awarded based on financial need, demographic factors and/or an excellent evaluation by the Admissions Committee. About one-half 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 and UMMS Financial Aid application. Need-based grants do not have to be repaid.
You can also search for and apply for scholarships offered beyond the University of Michigan.
