Current Scholarships of the U of M Club of Greater Flint (December 31, 2014)

Athletic Scholarship

This scholarship was established in 2002 with a five-year commitment of $100,000.  That goal was achieved, and the club decided to continue annual contributions until the endowed market balance exceeded $250,000.  These contributions were funded primarily from the proceeds of our Annual Golf and Sports Banquet and from additional gifts received by our alumni and friends.  

This scholarship is awarded by the Athletic Departmaent to an athlete from the Greater Flint region.

Dominic Tomasi Scholarship

This scholarship was established to honor former UM-Club president and outstanding Michigan football letterman, Dominic Tomasi.  Mr. Tomasi was a graduate of Flint Northern High School and lettered all four years for the UM football team. He was captain and MVP of the 1948 undefeated national championship team, and played second base for four seasons on the Wolverine baseball team.

The award recipient must be a high school senior from the Greater Flint region who will attend either the UM Ann Arbor or UM-Flint campus.  The award is based on academic excellence, athletic achievement, and community service.   Contact Financial Aid to apply at 810-762-3444 or financialaid@umflint.edu

Promise Scholar  Program Book Scholarship

Established in March 2011, the Promise Scholar Program Book Fund will assist students enrolled in the Promises Scholar Program at UM-Flint in purchasing textbooks for their education.  

The Promise Scholar Program is an alternative admission program for students who have academic potential but who would be unable to realize that potential without special support services due to their economic, cultural, or educational background. Services available to students admitted through the Promise Scholar Program help those students maximize their potential for success.

The M-Club provides up to $2,500 annually.  Recipients will receive $250 per semester and are eligible for two awards during their academic year.  Funding is for fall and winter semesters only and final selection is based primarily on financial need. Contact Financial Aid to apply at 810-762-3444 or financialaid@umflint.edu.
