Fellowships & Grants
The International Institute provides generous support to admitted students without regard to citizenship through the admissions process and additional scholarship opportunities to current and continuing students. Each year, the International Institute awards over $4 million in funding for research abroad, international internships, and the study of less commonly taught languages, as well as conference travel and event funding. Funds are awarded on the basis of need and merit. Our fellowships and grant support staff can provide information and assistance with applying for various funding opportunities.
Additionally, the University of Michigan participates in the U.S. Department of Education William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program, and federal loans are available to eligible U.S. citizens and permanent residents who submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). More information regarding financial aid for graduate students, including federal work study, on-campus employment, and private loans can be found at the Office of Financial Aid.
