Shapiro/Malik Awards

These awards provide assistance with interest payments on unsubsidized educational loans that students are obligated to pay while still in graduate school.

Deadline for applications is October 10, 2008.

The deadline for the Shapiro Awards is October 10th, 2008. They were established by Harold T. Shapiro, former President of the University of Michigan and Vivian Shapiro, former faculty member at the University of Michigan, to assist with interest payments on the unsubsidized educational loans that students are obligated to pay while still in graduate school. Dr. John Malik, a devoted Rackham alumnus in Physics, established an endowment for the same purpose. Both awards are made through a single competition.

US citizens and permanent residents applicants with $10,000 or more in unsubsidized educational loans will be given first consideration. Maximum awards will be $1,000 per student. Complete guidelines and applications can be found at: http://www.rackham.umich.edu/Fellowships
