Mr. & Ms. UM-Flint Scholarship Competition
8th Mr. & Ms. UM-Flint Scholarship Competition
The A.C.C.E.S.S. Program in the Office of Educational Opportunity Initiatives will be hosting the 8th Mr. & Ms. UM-Flint Scholarship Competition on Friday, November 2, 2012. The event will be held in the KIVA and doors will open at 5:30pm. Tickets go on sale for the event Tuesday, October 23, 2012 and can be purchased at the Office of Educational Opportunity Initiatives OR the Cashier's Office located in suite 261 UPAV. Tickets are only $5.
The purpose of the Scholarship Competition is to fundraise for the A.C.C.E.S.S. Program’s annual Book Scholarship. Applications for the scholarship become available following the conclusion of the Mr. & Ms. UM-Flint Scholarship Competition and recepients are notified in December prior to the semester's end. The award was designed to assist students in their educational endeavors by helping alleviate the costs of purchasing books for classes.
Over the years, the competition has evolved to one of the University’s premiere events. Student participants compete in three categories that give them the chance to express to the campus and community what makes them model students of what UM-Flint is all about! In line with the “Three Pillars” of the university of Michigan-Flint, our students display their excellence in learning, which goes beyond the classroom and the laboratory. It is our hope that the Mr. & Ms. UM-Flint Scholarship Competition continues the rich UM-Flint tradition where…
“Our students become leaders in their fields, in their professions, and in their communities.”
This year, we ask you to join us in supporting the students that make the UM-Flint what it is, and that is “a community of diverse learners and scholars, where students from this region and beyond prepare for leadership, achievement, and service…”
