For qualified LSA students, the Transfer Student Scholarship covers educational expenses such as tuition, room and board, and textbooks.
Awards for transfer students are based on a student's financial need and can range anywhere from $500 to $15,000 per year. These awards are non-renewable, but you can apply for them every year.
The application for transfer students opens on January 1st and closes on June 1st. Applicants will receive notifications in August.
To qualify for an LSA Transfer Student Scholarship, a student:
- Must be an undergraduate transfer student currently enrolled full-time and pursuing a degree program (or MDDP) in the College of LSA.
- Must be a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident (i.e. possess a green card).
- Must apply for and receive need-based support through the Office of Financial Aid.
- Must have a FAFSA and CSS profile on file with the Office of Financial Aid (OFA) and must renew their FAFSA annually.
All transfer students should apply through our Returning Student Scholarship application. Follow the link below to begin applying. There are three steps.
Step one: Newly admitted students need to log in to the application portal by using their Friend Account ID and password (the account used to apply to UM). Students transferring to LSA from another college at UM need to log in using their Uniqname and password.
Step two: Once logged in, complete the general application. When asked which scholarship program you are applying to, click the box for "Returning Student Scholarship."
Step three: Once the general application has been submitted, you will then be directed to complete the Returning Student Scholarship application. Submit this application for full consideration. If you are applying as an incoming transfer student, you will also be considered for our Two-Year Renewable Scholarship.
