Postgraduate scholarships

Home  /  After Graduation  /  Current Page

You may have won 1 or more scholarships to help fund your undergraduate education, but DID YOU KNOW that there are several competitive postgraduate scholarships that will  support short-term (from 1-a few years) of study, research and travel?

Many of these scholarships require students be endorsed by their undergraduate institutions, which means the first round(s) of applications are internal to the University of Michigan.

Who should apply?

Review the eligibility of the scholarships that interest you and consult with the UM contact about how to prepare a most competitive application. The earlier you start planning, the better!
