New UM-Flint scholarship seeks to 'recognize and reward' Genesee County's talent

FLINT, MI--The University of Michigan-Flint recently announced a new master's-level scholarship that aims to help young professionals advance their careers and their education.

The scholarship will cover the costs of up to two consecutive, full academic years of tuition and mandatory fees. Eligible applicants must reside in and be employed by an organization that has a physical location in Genesee County. According to a statement from the university, the scholarship will "recognize, reward, and develop the region’s next generation of leadership talent."  Applicants must be nominated by their supervisor or higher administration personnel at their place of employment.

Hottenstein said that while UM-Flint has several master's degree programs, she suspects that the Masters of Business Administration and the Masters of Public Administration will draw the largest number of applicants.

The number of Greater Flint Community Leadership Scholarships offered per year will depend on the number of qualified applicants and available funding.

One unique requirement of scholarship recipients is their commitment to fulfill at least one “engagement activity” on campus, which may consist of serving as a guest lecturer, mentor, or participating in a recruitment event.

The deadline to apply is July 1.  For more information or to apply visit
