There's so much value in a liberal arts education at LSA, from the joy of discovery to the critical, employable skills you'll build such as creativity, empathy, and the ability to work in diverse teams. Scholarships (available from both LSA and U-M) and financial aid make a Michigan education accessible to families with a wide range of incomes. If your goal is to become a Wolverine, our goal is to make it possible.
The LSA Scholarships Office matches eligible students to specific LSA scholarships. Admitted students can apply for a Renewable Scholarship or an International Student Scholarship before deciding to enroll. Students who complete either application will be considered for all scholarships available to them through LSA—whether they qualify for need-based awards, merit awards, or both. LSA also provides scholarships for current students that cover everything from tuition support to study abroad to completing an internship.
First-Generation College Students
The Kessler Presidential Scholarship provides four years of support to exceptional LSA students who are among the first in their family to attend college. The program selects 40 incoming first-generation students to become Kessler Scholars each year.
Eligible LSA students can take advantage of the Go Blue Guarantee, which covers the full cost of tuition for in-state students who are admitted to U-M and whose families earn incomes of $65,000 or less, with $50,000 or less in assets.
Most financial aid funding is available through the University of Michigan Office of Financial Aid. Their website provides detailed information on how and when to complete funding applications.
