Making your dream of a Michigan degree affordable!

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!

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.
