University of Michigan Alumni Association

Scholarships

Making the Michigan experience accessible to all deserving students is one of the goals of the Palm Beaches club. The generosity of our members allows us to award a scholarship each year to an incoming freshman from our club area (i.e., Palm Beach, Martin or St. Lucie Counties).

STUDENTS -- HOW TO APPLY

Any student from our club area accepted by the University for the Fall semester is eligible.  These students will be e-mailed a questionnaire which they would complete and return to the club by the application deadline.  Once the Scholarship Committee has reviewed the applications, a recipient is selected and the award applied as a credit to the tuition bills for that year, with half applied to each semester's bill.  For further information, please contact Scholarship Lead Sheldon Robertson at sheldonr@umich.edu.

 

ALUMNI -- HOW TO DONATE TO OUR ENDOWMENT CAMPAIGN

Scholarships mean a lot to the students from our area, given the cost of out-of-state tution and travel expenses. We are currently engaged in a campaign to establish a new endowment fund that will allow our scholarship awards to grow over time. Our current scholarship fund earns no interest, so we have been hampered in our ability to increase the amount of our award to make it more significant financially for its recipients. Your contributions to our endowment campaign would be greatly appreciated, so please contact  Scholarship Lead Sheldon Robertson at sheldonr@umich.edu for further information, or make an online donation  here.

If you wish to donate by check, make it payable to "University of Michigan" and on the "Memo" line please write "PB Endowment Fund (#799386)".
