Scholarships

As can be seen on the timeline page, being a Pre-Medical Sciences student is demanding in terms of academics and extracurricular activities (research, volunteering & job shadowing). As such, we know it can be hard to hold a job while attending school and recognize the need for financial support during a student’s academic career. The UM Pre-Medical Sciences program offers a wide range of scholarships to students pursuing health professions school. Scholarships are awarded in May for the following academic year. Please see below for a summary of the eligibility criteria for our Pre-Med Scholarships.
