In 2015, we launched a local campaign to endow our scholarship for future generations. Strongly powered by our enthusiastic support at local Michigan Football Game Watch Parties, and support from a generous anonymous donor, we were able to fund an endowment that will allow the club to award a significant scholarship every year in perpetuity. Annually, prior to the beginning of the Fall semester, the club provides a scholarship and often several smaller book scholarships to assist local students attending the University of Michigan. With support from our local University of Michigan community, we hope to be able to do more in the future.
The scholarship committee has spoken to too many talented Central Florida students who matriculate to other schools simply because they cannot afford to attend The University of Michigan. As a local club, we feel a strong obligation to help assist these local students financially.
If you would like to contribute to future Wolverines in Central Florida, please access our donation links through the University of Michigan or contact [email protected] for further information on how to donate.

Eligible students are any undergraduate student from our club area accepted by the University for the Fall semester. These students will be e-mailed an application in the Spring which they would complete and return to the club by the application deadline. If you feel you are eligible and do not receive the information (typically in May), please contact us.
Once our Scholarship Committee has reviewed the applications, a recipient is selected, and the award is announced during our Student Sendoff in late Summer. The scholarship amount is applied directly to the student’s account with the University.
