About Us

Appreciate + Reciprocate is a student-founded, student-run organization made up of University of Michigan scholarship recipients. Membership spans across the diverse academic fields in the College of Literature, Sciences, and the Arts, Appreciate + Reciprocate is a network of students who have united to multiply the Michigan Difference. Our mission is to give back to the University of Michigan and the Ann Arbor community in appreciation for the opportunities we have received. Through establishing and fundraising the LSA Appreciate + Reciprocate Scholarship Fund, we support our fellow students and enrich the cycle of giving at the University of Michigan. Appreciate + Reciprocate members also draw upon their unique passions and talents to engage in volunteering partnerships with Ann Arbor community organizations, and host awareness events for access of education on campus.

Appreciate + Reciprocate believes financial burdens should not take away from a student’s Michigan education.

All too often students cannot fully immerse themselves in the Michigan experience, due to financial burdens. Instead of participating in all Michigan has to offer, students are forced to worry about rent, the cost of books, and tuition.

We are a community of LSA scholarship students whose lives were forever changed by scholarships and are now dedicated to enriching the cycle of giving at Michigan by fundraising for the LSA Appreciate + Reciprocate Scholarship.

The endowment provides scholarships, which benefit LSA students, so all can be a part of the Michigan experience. Appreciate + Reciprocate believes in students helping students!
