Alumni Legacy Scholarship

University of Michigan-Dearborn alumni group established the Alumni Legacy Scholarship

In 1997, the University of Michigan-Dearborn Alumni Society established the Alumni Legacy Scholarship.  The scholarship is appropriately named, as it will perpetuate the legacy of the University of Michigan-Dearborn tradition by providing scholarships to academically talented students with familial or other significant relationships to UM-Dearborn graduates (i.e. child, sibling, grandchild, spouse, stepchild, niece, nephew or cousin).

Since the 1998/99 academic year, the Alumni Legacy Scholarship has been able to assist in the funding of countless UM-Dearborn undergraduate student educations.
