How to Apply

Lloyd Scholars for Writing and the Arts (LSWA) is accepting applications from recent waitlist admits for the 2024-2025 Academic Year.

The MLC application is currently open to students admitted from the University Michigan waitlist only. If you were admitted to the university after May 17, 2024 you may apply using the following application link.

Application Questions

There will be two application essay questions. Since the MLC application does time out, we recommend writing out your answers beforehand, so you can copy and paste them into the application form. 

Here is the Michigan Learning Communities question: The Michigan Learning Communities are committed to building communities of engaged and enthusiastic students from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. In what ways would you contribute to your Michigan Learning Community and bring a unique perspective or viewpoint? (Suggested word count: 150-300 words.) 

Here's the LSWA specific question: Describe a recent creative project (such as poetry, performance, visual arts, music, dance, theater, fiction, journalism, etc.) that demonstrates your interest in writing and the arts. How does it speak to your passions, leadership, or the ways you approach creative challenges? (One paragraph.)
