Alumni & Community Engagement

Our Community

The Engaged Scholars (E-Scholars) Program is a learning community and scholarship program for the highest achieving students from Michigan’s most economically disadvantaged schools districts. Engaged Scholars embody perseverance, achievement and engagement. 

The Program

Engaged Scholars have a full time Program Coordinator dedicated to supporting their success within the Program and at the University of Michigan-Dearborn.

Engaged Scholars receive a scholarship and are required to maintain a designated cumulative GPA. During their first 2 years, Scholars must also earn points within the Talent Gateway by submitting challenges based on the three pillars of the Program. 

Student Engagement

Engaged Scholars  have many ways to get involved. Involvement ranges from elected positions, to programming committees, to week long Alternative Spring Break Trips.

Get Involved

Our Program has many ways for University Alumni, community partners, and University faculty and staff to get involved. Opportunities include serving as a mentor, volunteering at events to welcome new Scholars, helping facilitate workshops, or sponsoring the Program financially to further our ability to send Scholars on service trips and to conferences.
