In 2015, we launched a local campaign to endow our scholarship for future generations. Strongly powered by our enthusiastic support at local Michigan Football Game Watch Parties, in less than 2 years we have reached our first goal of getting to the $10,000 level which allowed us to establish an account with the Office of Financial Aid. Our stretch goal is to reach the endowed scholarship level of $50,000 in the next four to five years. We are putting out a call to our alumni and friends to help us get there far sooner! We will not be awarding scholarships while the focus remains on building our scholarship fund, but once we reach the endowed scholarship, we can award a significant scholarship every year in perpetuity.
The scholarship committee has spoken to too many talented Central Florida students who matriculate to other schools simply because they cannot afford to attend The University of Michigan. As a local club, it is our duty to provide a significant scholarship that can help change that story for at least one student. Our club is well on its way to doing just that.
If you would like to contribute to future Wolverines in Central Florida, please access our donation link here through the University of Michigan or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information on how to donate.
