There are numerous scholarship opportunities. The School offers Dean’s Scholarships, which are awarded based on the undergraduate GPA of incoming students (as calculated for admissions review purposes) in addition to a strong commitment to the mission of the School of Social Work. The School also offers Merit Scholarships based on strong academic and/or social work-related experience or based on a strong commitment to the mission of the School. No separate application is necessary for applicants to be reviewed for these awards. Several other named scholarships are also awarded based upon information in applications and supporting documentation.
The School also offers Michigan Scholarships, which are based on a combination of merit and need as well as Opportunity Grants which are based primarily on need. Michigan Scholarships and Opportunity Grants require the submission of the School of Social Work Financial Aid Form and the FAFSA to the University of Michigan (code: 002325).
If a student wants to be considered for the Child Welfare Scholarship Program, Community Scholars: Community-Based Initiative in Detroit, Community Scholars: National Community Scholars, Geriatric Scholarship Program, Global Activities Scholars Program, Integrated Health with Medically Underserved Populations, Jewish Communal Leadership Program, or New Leaders in African-Centered Social Work Scholars Program, there is a separate application specific to each special program.
