The University of Michigan Club of Greater Detroit funds scholarships each year for both the general student body as well as for student-athletes. Several of these scholarships are endowed. In addition to the scholarships that we sponsor, at times we have been asked by the University to help a student that needed financial assistance to continue their education. The University of Michigan Club of Greater Detroit has always tried to meet each and every request from the University.
