For many of us, the experiences we have outside of the classroom define our time at Michigan. We also know that some of our peers face financial barriers to extracurricular involvement. Some organizations ask their members to contribute financially, while all require that leaders dedicate large amounts of time without pay.
In order to reduce this burden and create a campus community in which students regardless of income level are able to fully participate in the rich extracurricular life of Michigan, Central Student Government has initiated a campus-wide project to create the Leadership Engagement Scholarship. This scholarship will provide financial awards to emerging and established student leaders with demonstrated need in any avenue of campus life.
We need you to become part of our outreach and fundraising efforts to ensure that this scholarship is funded. Our goal is to take applications for awards by Fall 2017. Get involved today --volunteer at events, share your story, etc.-- and help us realize this more diverse, equitable, and inclusive tomorrow. Join us by attending one of the following information sessions:
Friday, 10/21: 5-7pm, Michigan League, Kalamazoo Room
Wednesday, 10/26: 7-8pm, Michigan Union 3rd Floor, CSG Chambers
