The University of Michigan in the USA is inviting applications for its Freshmen Merit Scholarship for the 2019/2020 academic session.

Founded in 1956 on a commitment to bring a quality Michigan education to Flint and the surrounding area, UM-Flint has done exactly what they set out to do. In the process, they’ve welcomed a record number of students into their classrooms, equipping them with the knowledge, experiences, and skills to make lasting contributions to the businesses, organizations, and communities they help shape. They invite you to see how their students, faculty, staff, and campus are making a real difference.

At UM-Flint, they want you to focus on starting your university experience strong—not on how you’ll pay for college.
