LEAD Scholarship Student Application
We appreciate your interest in the LEAD Scholars program! Students MUST be admitted to the University of Michigan before applying for the LEAD Scholarship.
- The LEAD Scholarship application will be available starting in late January 2023 for first-year admitted students planning to enroll at U-M for fall 2023.
- You must first be admitted to U-M (Ann Arbor, Dearborn, or Flint) before applying for the LEAD Scholarship.
- The LEAD selection process will offer two application deadlines — tentatively late February and late March. Offers will be made in two rounds. We do not anticipate making any additional offers after the May 1 enrollment deadline.
- It is a competitive selection process. Last year, we received nearly 1,100 applications for limited spots in the fall 2022 LEAD cohort of 72 scholars.
Looking for additional scholarship opportunities? Many of our alumni clubs and alumni affiliate groups also offer scholarships to incoming and continuing U-M students from their regions.
