Blavin Scholarship (University of Michigan)

The Blavin Scholarship is a need based award that provides $2,000 to $5,000 per student, per year. Staff works closely with Financial Aid Office and scholars to determine need and revisits this regularly.

Support services include:

  • Guidance through the admission and transition process
  • One-on-one support
  • Access to support staff 24/7, 365 days a year
  • Liaisons in important campus offices who are familiar with the program and the specific needs that may arise for our scholars
  • Group gatherings aimed at improving scholars’ life skills and social supports and emergency financial assistance

Each Blavin scholar is matched with a mentor selected from U of M’s faculty and staff. Our mentors have similar interests to our scholars and are academically relevant, though they also provide emotional and social support.
