The main sources of U-M graduate student scholarship/fellowship opportunities are your U-M school, college, or department and the Rackham Graduate School.

The Office of Financial Aid administers several scholarships for graduate students, as detailed in the menus below. If the scholarships are based on demonstrated need, be sure to apply for financial aid to be considered. At U-M, scholarships are awarded based on several criteria including academic achievement, personal talents, interests, leadership qualities, financial need, or a combination of these. Scholarships often reflect the university's commitment to achieving a diverse student body. While a separate application is required for some scholarships, most require only your university admission application.
