The Kessler Presidential Scholars Program supports a diverse community of first-generation college students at U-M.

The Kessler Presidential Scholarship provides four years of support to exceptional University of Michigan students like you—who are among the first in their family to attend college—helping them achieve their dreams.

The Kessler Scholars are a close-knit community. Alongside Kessler alumni and professional staff committed to your success, you’ll discover how to be your best and explore how your U-M degree empowers you to shape the world.

Kessler Scholars go on to work in healthcare, finance, education, law, and more. Many graduates remain active in the community, and attribute much of their success to the support they received in the program.

 

 

 

The Kessler Presidential Scholars Program is rethinking what scholarship support means in higher education. Hear how access to educational and pre-professional opportunities, wraparound support, and a welcoming community are helping first-generation students thrive at U-M
