At UM-Flint, we want you to focus on starting your university experience strong—not on how you’ll pay for college. Available for first-time freshmen coming out of high school, our Freshmen Merit Scholarship program offers more funding for students with a strong academic record and a desire to excel. Applying for freshman scholarships is easy at UM-Flint! You are automatically awarded scholarships at the time of admission based on your test scores and GPA (**exceptions apply-see below)!
Our Freshmen Merit Scholarships simplify the process of applying for and receiving awards, with:
- No separate application to fill out—first-time freshmen are automatically considered for Freshmen Merit Scholarships when they apply to UM-Flint.
- Immediate eligibility to receive scholarship funds for up to four years, for qualifying incoming freshmen who meet the minimum guidelines.
- Instant information on which scholarship amount you qualify for—no waiting for an answer.
*Eligible students admitted in Spring and Summer 2020 will begin receiving their awards in the Fall 2020 semester. Awards are only distributed in the Fall and Winter terms. **We have implemented a March 1, 2020 deadline for our True Blue Merit Scholarships. Students not admitted by March 1 will not be eligible for this full in-state automatic merit award, but will still be eligible for our $5,000/annual award.
