U-M college prep program to offer full scholarships

Students in Ypsilanti and Southfield who complete a new college-prep program being offered by the University of Michigan will get a full-ride scholarship to the university, U-M President Mark Schlissel announced today.

The program, called Wolverine Pathways, will start in January and be for residents who live in the Ypsilanti and Southfield school districts. Students do not need to be students in the Ypsilanti or Southfield public schools.

UM announces new program to increase diversity

To increase student body diversity at the University of Michigan, President Mark Schlissel has announced an initiative that will initially develop 120 students in Southfield and Ypsilanti in a program that could eventually lead to four-year scholarships.

The program, to be known as Wolverine Pathways, will partner with the school districts to increase the number of underrepresented minority and first-generation students at the university. It will select students in the seventh and 10th grades for a year-round program that continues to their completion of 12th grade.
