Support from the start

Even before you set foot in Ann Arbor, we will guide you through enrollment, summer orientation, class registration, and applying for housing. When you and your family have questions, you’ll find a real person just a phone call or email away—you can even come visit in person. We will help you feel at home during your transition to college.

We’re here for you

Kessler Scholars staff members are experts in student growth and academic success. We are here for you, from the moment you decide to enroll at Michigan until the day you graduate, and beyond. Along the way, we’ll connect you to the exciting opportunities U-M has to offer—from unforgettable classes to volunteer activities, from internships to study abroad, and more. We also provide amazing experiences open only to Kessler Scholars, including connections with alumni, workshops, and programs.


















“The Kessler Scholarship Program goes above and beyond just giving money for school. It has an amazing staff that really invest their time in making sure that their scholars are equipped with the adequate knowledge, tools, and resources in order to succeed.”
