Diversity scholarships

Both UMSI and U-M offer scholarships that promote diversity in our academic community.

UMSI diversity scholarships

The Roger Ehrenberg and Carin Levine-Ehrenberg Diversity Scholarship 
As of 2016 this new scholarship fund will provide need-based support to students, with preference to students who are the first in their families to attend college or graduate school, who have overcome substantial educational or economic obstacles, or who have demonstrated experience in or commitment to working with historically underserved or underprivileged populations.

The UMSI Achievement Fellowships
This fellowship is open to US citizens or permanent residents with a record of superior academic achievement who are from underrepresented educational, cultural or geographic backgrounds; have demonstrated commitment to diversity; have experienced financial hardship as a result of family economic circumstances; or are first-generation US citizens or four-year college graduates.

U-M funding

External diversity scholarships

Many professional organizations with a commitment to diversity offer funding opportunities for which UMSI students are well suited. All external scholarship awards are eligible for matching funds from UMSI (for students who have not already received an MSI tuition scholarship), up to a maximum of $10,000 and subject to availability.
