The U-M Club of Albany annually awards undergraduate scholarships to local area residents who show academic excellence and leadership in their high schools and local community. The number of scholarships varies, but we annually award between $5,000 and $6,000. In 2018 we awarded three scholarships to students from Burnt Hills – Ballston Lake High School, Albany Academy, and Red Hook High School.
Completed applications for the scholarship are due by April 30th, with awards being made in May at our annual alumni dinner. The scholarship awards are issued as credits to the student’s account at the University of Michigan.
Should you wish to apply for a scholarship, please contact our Scholarship Chairman, Anne Breznau, at [email protected].
