Scholars Programs

University of Michigan-Dearborn is excited to announce new Chancellor’s and Dean’s Scholarship Programs to our incoming first year students. These programs offer partial to full tuition merit-based scholarships.  However, these programs are more than just merit scholarships. They empower students through resources and support to reach their full potential and make an impact on the university, southeast Michigan, and the world beyond.

As an incoming first-year student, you have been selected based on your outstanding academic success, evidence of intellectual curiosity, creative thinking, communications skills, servant leadership, commitment to community, your sincere interest in personal growth, and a desire to invest your time, energy and talents to improve the lives of others.

In addition to receiving a merit scholarship, as a UM-Dearborn Chancellor’s or Dean’s Scholar, you have access to both programming and opportunities to support you on your journey: 

  • your scholarship
  • excellent programming and opportunities for growth
  • engagement with peers, faculty, and alumni, all of whom will support you in reaching your full potential 

As a Chancellor’s or Dean’s Scholar, you will be a valuable contributor to the UM-Dearborn community, developing skills that are critical to making a positive impact in your community, your profession and the world.

Students who have been selected for these scholarships:

  • Must have above a 3.50 GPA
  • Must have completed a scholarship application demonstrating interest and achievement, which was reviewed by the selection panel

Applicants who were not selected as finalists for one of these scholarships will still receive full consideration for other, smaller merit-based scholarships.

  • May 1 is also the enrollment deposit deadline; you are strongly encouraged to submit your deposit by this deadline to secure your scholarship (exceptions may be made for specific circumstances).
