Information on Merit Aid @ Mich

<p>I couldn't find anything too substantial on the Michigan website about what sort of scholarships they offer, so I'm asking here. </p>

<p>Does anyone have any experience with these awards? I know that a few large scholarships exist, but I have no idea what kind of student usually wins them. </p>

<p>Personally, I have a 1490 SAT score, a 3.92 UW GPA (recalc'ed Michigan-style) and generally very interesting EC's, but I was not expecting any free money from a university that gets so many highly-qualified applicants.</p>

<p>Edit: Noticed that there was another post on a similar subject--it isn't getting too much attention so I guess I didn't notice it. Did not intend to be redundant.</p>

<p>Michigan has not historically been known to give out merit-based scholies. But they do from time to time. You will definitely make it into the honor's program, but whether or not you get merit aid is a crap shoot!</p>

<p>Here's what I know of merit money at UM. The $ quoted are for out of state, less is given in state, but the chances are the same, I believe.</p>

<p>Engineering gives about 10% of the entering class $15k per year. LSA gives the same, but to smaller % of class. There is also Shipman scholarship that gives offers $10k plus R&B (U housing only) to about 15 people, and another 30 people get offered $5k. Both of these are on top of the $15 provided by the college. If you get a Shipman, the college's $15 k is automatic. </p>

<p>If you do a search of Shipman on the UM website, you'll get more info.</p>

<p>That's right. Dad knows where it is at!!! I forgot about Dr. Sidney Shipman scholies. That is a great program. Here's the website for it:</p>
