The UM Club of Denver is proud to support the Michigan students who call the “Centennial State” home. Every year, thanks to the generosity of our local alumni, our club awards a scholarship to an incoming freshman, returning undergrad, and graduate student. The scholarship program runs in the summer, typically kicking off in early June and wrapping up in August. Keep an eye on this webpage for the application and all the details.
If you have any questions about the application process, please contact our Scholarship Chair, Josh Kweller.
To continue administering UMCD’s scholarship program, we need your help! Support, of course, can take many forms, including:

|“I want to thank the UM Club of Denver for this amazing scholarship opportunity! Even though COVID-19 has made this year very challenging, I am nonetheless still excited to begin college and to explore new interests. I plan on majoring in Biophysics, eventually to pursue a career in medicine as a physician and a researcher. As I venture through the next chapters of my life, I will remember and always be grateful for the support the UM Club of Denver has given me. Go Blue!”||“Thank you so much to the scholarship committee and UMCD for their time and consideration. I am so excited to be a recipient of this scholarship and to continue my time at Michigan as I embark on my curriculum as a public health major! There is no better place that I can think of to be during this time to receive a public health education. In the future, I hope to call attention to and to dismantle health inequalities and inequities, and work to bring social justice to the forefront of our healthcare and medical system. GO BLUE!”||“I am sincerely honored to be selected as the recipient of the UM Alumni Club of Denver Scholarship. As I begin my journey to pursue a Ph.D. degree in biomedical sciences at the University of Michigan, I am grateful and appreciative of the generous support from the club. This award will give me an opportunity to gain skills and tools that will prepare me in my career as a researcher. Someday, I aspire to be a research scientist and a professor who directs clinical trials for novel therapeutic interventions for human diseases. Additionally, I hope to create outreach programs that will bridge the gap that limits the disadvantaged students from the educational opportunities they deserve. As always, Go Blue!”|
Congratulations, and good luck to all of our Colorado U-M students as the school year gets underway!
