LSA Scholarship Requirements

General Requirements for All LSA Scholarships

  • All scholarships through the LSA Scholarship Office are only available to students who will obtain a degree in the College of LSA
    • It should also be noted that a minor in LSA is not a degree program and students only holding an LSA minor are not eligible for LSA scholarships.
  • For students transferring to another college or school within the University of Michigan, or transferring to a new university, they must contact the scholarship office prior to the beginning of the academic term the transfer will be in effect. Please email Erica Gehringer, at ericageh@umich.edu
  • Only students who are U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents ("green card holders") are eligible for scholarships through the LSA Scholarship Program. 
  • Scholarship students must renew their FASFA each year if applicable.
  • Students must notify the LSA Scholarship Office of any funds or support they receive from sources other than the University of Michigan and the College of LSA. Please contact Erica Gehringer, at ericageh@umich.edu.
  • Students who receive a scholarship from the College of LSA are required to thank their scholarship donor(s) via a donor thank you survey.  The link to the survey will be emailed to the student.
  • If a student has a disability and requires accommodations with any of the scholarship program requirements, please contact Erica Gehringer, at ericageh@umich.edu, early in the semester to ensure the student’s needs may be appropriately met.

Non-Four-Year Scholarship Requirements

  • Students will maintain full-time enrollment of 12 credit hours or more per term. If a student chooses to withdraw or ceases to carry the required number of credits per semester, they should contact Erica Gehringer, at ericageh@umich.edu, prior to the beginning of the semester.
  • There is no GPA requirement for the LSA Fall and Winter Scholarship.

Four-Year Scholarship Recipients Requirements

  • Each student who is the recipient of a four-year LSA scholarship is required to complete at least 40 hours of volunteer service over the course of the academic year (fall, winter, spring, and/or summer terms). For more information about the Scholarship Service Program, please click here.
  • Recipients of a four-year scholarship from the College of LSA are required to maintain a 3.0 GPA throughout their time at the University of Michigan. If your GPA should fall below 3.0, set up an appointment with Katherine Weathers, the LSA Scholarship Coordinator, at weatherk@umich.edu to discuss your situation.
  • Students will maintain full-time enrollment of 12 credit hours or more per term. If a student chooses to withdraw or ceases to carry the required number of credits per semester, they should contact Erica Gehringer, at ericageh@umich.edu, prior to the beginning of the semester.
  • LSA students admitted into a Multiple Dependent Degree Program (MDDP), also known as a dual degree program, are still eligible to receive or apply for a scholarship from the College of LSA.
    • MDDP students who receive scholarships from the College of LSA must complete both degrees.  If the LSA degree is not completed for any reason, the scholarship will be retroactively cancelled and the student will be billed for the full amount beginning from the first semester that the MDDP began. The student must repay the scholarship if an LSA degree is not conferred. Non-payment may result in a hold on the student’s diploma, or a block on the request for an official transcript until the amount due is paid.
    • If a student is receiving a scholarship from LSA or has applied for a scholarship, the scholarship will not disburse (pay out), or be applied to the student’s financial aid package until the dual degree status is official.  “Planning to be” dual degree (MDDP) or “in the process of applying for MDDP” is not sufficient.  The student must meet with their individual academic advisor and follow their recommendations about how to proceed with the MDDP application process.  There are no exceptions to this requirement.
