- Scholarships will be awarded to first-year students entering the College of Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
- Prospective students should plan to submit their application for admission to the University of Michigan as early as possible (Applications for admission take 10-12 weeks to process).
- Recipients must be enrolling at the University of Michigan and pursuing an undergraduate degree program in engineering.
- Scholarship support is for four years of undergraduate support or through graduation, whichever is less.
- Annual renewal is contingent on satisfactory academic progress and maintaining a cumulative GPA of 3.0.
