Consortium scholarships are supported through special initiatives of the JCMU Consortium. Only students from Michigan’s 15 public universities (listed below) are eligible for these scholarships. You must be enrolled at one of our Consortium universities during the time of the program to receive this scholarship. You do not need to apply for these awards - they will be given to you automatically.
As these scholarships are offered through JCMU, scholarship payments will be issued as deductions from the recipient’s JCMU invoice. Only in the case that the scholarship award is greater than the amount due will the scholarship then be paid directly to the student’s home institution. JCMU does NOT issue any form of payment to the student or recipient directly.
