U-M launches program that could provide full scholarships to Ypsilanti, Southfield students

University of Michigan President Mark Schlissel Friday announced a new college prep program that will give some Ypsilanti and Southfield seventh and 10th graders a shot at a full four-year scholarship to the Ann Arbor school.

The program is part of the university’s continued efforts to increase the population of underrepresented minorities.

Schlissel announced the details of the new Wolverine Pathways program morning at his President’s Leadership Breakfast held inside the Michigan Union.

“The Provost Committee on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion recommended investments in new partnerships with school districts to increase the pipeline of college-ready, underrepresented minority and first-generation students. And earlier this month Gov. Snyder called on universities to work more closely with K-12 districts to help get students ready to attend college,” he said.

“Wolverine Pathways will select students in the seventh and 10th grade for a year-round program that continues to their completion of 12th grade. We will begin Wolverine Pathways in the Southfield and Ypsilanti school districts starting this January.”

The program will select 120 students, 60 seventh-graders and 60 10th graders. They will participate in fall, winter and summer sessions, provided by U-M tutors and mentors. The sessions will include project-based learning modules in English, science and math.

“The program will also include service and leadership opportunities, cultural events, test preparation, resources for parents and guardians, and visits to our campus. If the scholars successfully complete the program, apply and are admitted to U-M, they will earn a full, four-year tuition scholarship.”

U-M announced earlier this month that it had enrolled its most diverse freshman class since 2005, with 12.8 percent of the class classified as underrepresented minorities.
