All qualified students are evaluated for merit scholarships during the admission process with consideration given to those students whose completed applications for admission are received by the application deadline. Selection criteria include grade point average, academic course load, rank in class, personal essay, two letters of recommendation, extracurricular involvement, as well as standardized test scores. For full-ride consideration (Michigan Scholar and Chancellor's Scholarship), two letters of recommendation and a personal essay are required (letters and essay can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org). Scholarship awards are not guaranteed. All awards are based on the competitiveness of the applicant pool and available funds.
