How to Apply

Michigan Community Scholars Program is accepting applications from recent waitlist admits for the 2024-2025 Academic Year.

The Michigan Learning Communities (MLC) application is currently open to first-year students recently 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 MCSP specific question: Tell us about a social justice issue you would like to learn more about or take an active role in addressing during your first year in MCSP. Why is this issue important to you? Based on your understanding of MCSP's mission, how would your participation in MCSP allow you to learn more and prepare you to take action on this issue? (expected word count: 200-300 words)
