New U of M Scholarships
(2007-06-22)
(wgvu) - The University of Michigan has replaced
scholarships that were scrapped after a voter-approved ban on
preferential treatment based on race and gender.
The university yesterday unveiled two scholarships. The Michigan
Tradition Award and Michigan Experience Award provide ten-thousand
dollars a year for up to four eligible freshman from low-income
families.
Officials also say they have raised 12 (M) million dollars from
35-hundred donors for financial aid that will be matched by the
university to maintain a diverse campus. The money was raised in
eight months.
University officials were forced to change their admissions
policies after voters approved Proposal Two in November.
