Irene and Morris B. Kessler Presidential Scholarship
Apply to join the Kessler Scholars: a unique scholarship to support first-generation college students. The Kessler Presidential Scholarship provides four years of support to exceptional University of Michigan students who are among the first in their family to pursue a four-year college degree and who demonstrate significant financial need.
The Kessler Scholarship can provide up to $15,000 per year in financial support for students who are Michigan residents or up to $25,000 per year for out-of-state students. The scholarship is renewable for four years of undergraduate study.
Kessler Scholars benefit from more than just scholarship funding. They join a supportive cohort-based scholarship community and gain access to academic, social, and professional resources to help promote their success at the University of Michigan.
