Logistics and Application

Who Can Apply?

All University of Michigan students are eligible to apply for GLACE, as are special students and international students. GLACE is an intensive and communal academic program that requires fairly continuous participation. Therefore students who anticipate having other important spring-term commitments should probably not apply this year.

Program Costs and Financial Aid

  • Students are responsible for the cost of eight credits of spring-term tuition. and $1,200 room and board fees at UMBS.
  • Students who receive financial aid during the academic year may be eligible for LSA scholarships to help defray spring-term tuition costs.
  • In addition, students may apply for need-based and merit-based scholarships through the University of Michigan Biological Station
    • Note:  This includes a new funding source.  The English Department has received additional support from two generous donors for GLACE-SPECIFIC, need-based SCHOLARSHIPS. 
  • Round-trip transportation between Ann Arbor and Pellston is provided by UMBS.
