Welcome, LSA Class of 2024!

We are so glad that you made the choice to join the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts at the University of Michigan! We hope that the next four years bring incredible opportunities and help you forge life-long connections.

The LSA Scholarships Office typically invites first-year LSA Scholars to a big welcome event at the start of the academic year to answer questions and connect them with resources that can help them achieve their best at Michigan. This year is anything but typical. That is why we created this page to serve as a place for connection and exploration within a safe, virtual space. 

Before digging into all the resources available on this page—and we hope that you will—be sure to watch Dean Curzan's welcome address. Recorded from her home, her video speech is full of sage advice about cultivating personal, academic, and professional success. She also provides crucial reminders to build spaces for joy, play, and discovery into your daily life.

Again, we are so excited that you are here. If you have any questions, or would like to connect with the LSA Scholarships team, please don't hesitate to reach out to us via email or schedule an appointment

 

A Welcome Message from Dean Anne Curzan

Dr. Anne Curzan, Dean of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, shares a few words with this year's incoming class of LSA Scholars. 

LSA Scholarships Orientation Panel + Q&A

On September 10, 2020, LSA Scholarships hosted a virtual event for first-year LSA Scholars. Our panelists addressed student questions on topics ranging from mental health to study tips to scholarship requirements. Now, you can watch the recording of the event to catch up on any advice you might have missed the first time around. 

Have questions about your Service Requirement?

LSA Scholars are required to complete 20 hours of community service each year as a requirement of their scholarship. 

To help you meet this requirement safely, we have created an alternative service program option for the 2020-21 academic year. Students can still choose to complete 20 hours of service, or they can participate in a number of virtual, pre-approved activities built around service, wellness, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
