Rhodes, Marshall and Mitchell Scholarships
Rhodes and Marshall Scholarships provide funding for two or three years of graduate study in Great Britain. Rhodes Scholarships are used in any program available at Oxford; Marshall Scholars can choose from a large number of universities and programs in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.. The George Mitchell Scholarship Program provides for one year of graduate work in the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland. To be eligible for any of these programs, you must hold an undergraduate degree by the fall in which the scholarship begins. There are age, citizenship, and other criteria that you can find on the appropriate web page or in the Honors office. In general, academic excellence, distinguished preparation and promise of future success in a specific field, wide interests and involvement, personal development, and leadership are all taken into account by the scholarship committees. Successful candidates usually have a GPA of 3.7 or better and a record of participation in activities that demonstrate leadership and commitment.
Scholarships to continuing undergraduates in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) are funded by gifts to the College of LSA. These gifts include donations to the LSA Annual Fund for Student Support, scholarship endowments, bequests and annual gifts from donors. Each year nearly 400 students receive a College of Literature, Science, and the Arts Undergraduate Scholarship, funded from one or more of our scholarship accounts.
College Eligibility. Applicants must be continuing students (completed two academic terms in LSA) pursuing a degree program in LSA and enrolled for at least 12 credit hours during the fall and winter 2008-09 academic year.
Monetary Award. The LSA Undergraduate Scholarship monetary award is determined based on your scholarship application and information in your financial aid package from the University of Michigan, Office of Financial Aid. The LSA Scholarship Office has access to each applicant’s financial aid package to establish eligibility and the scholarship amount. Please note that these scholarships are not awarded or administered by the Office of Financial Aid. Monetary awards have ranged from $500 to $5,000 for the fall and winter terms. An award in one year does not guarantee continuation of the LSA Undergraduate Scholarship in subsequent years.

Cite all of your applicable characteristics, such as professional interests, future career plans, etc. in the “Donor Criteria" section. (Some scholarships are reserved for students who meet restricted criteria established by individual donors.)
