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 closed April 29, and all offers have been made. We do not anticipate making any additional offers after the May 1 enrollment deadline. All applicants not offered a scholarship were sent a final status email on May 5 (if you don’t see it, be sure to check your spam folder). This year, we received nearly 1,100 applications for limited spots in the incoming fall 2022 LEAD cohort of 72 scholars.

For questions about the LEAD Scholarship and/or the selection process, please contact Phyllis Taylor, Lead Assistant Director of Alumni Student Recruitment & LEAD Scholars, at phtaylor@umich.edu or 734.764.2316.

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.
