The Transfer Bridges to Michigan program is an opportunity for GRCC students who are interested in transferring to the College of Literature, Science,and the Arts at the University of Michigan (U-M). Through this unique program, U-M professionals will keep you current with the most updated information to help you successfully prepare and submit your transfer application.
Do you have questions about specific majors, research, graduate school, or just academic planning in general? Transfer Bridges students can meet directly with faculty and staff in academic departments to explore their interests, even before you are admitted to U-M.
Student-led organization that offers workshops, mentorship, and funding for students to create self-directed projects that make a positive impact. Transfer Bridges students can take part in storytelling workshops, visits to Ann Arbor, and participation in social innovation challenges while they are still enrolled at GRCC.
optiMize moMentum is for community college students pre-transfer. optiMize aMplify is for transfer students at Michigan. Both are led by UM students who recently transferred, and both connect you with some of Michigan's most valuable resources.
The moMentum fellowship gives you the opportunity to spend two days exploring the University of Michigan—either in Ann Arbor or at a site closer to you—exploring everything that UM has to offer in the way of resources, social innovation, and entrepreneurial skills. Plus you will meet a lot of amazing fellow community college students and receive a $500 stipend for participating.
Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program
Engages students in research and creative inquiry by providing opportunities to work on research and creative projects with U-M researchers and community partners in all academic disciplines. UROP offers three summer research fellowship programs for community college students that you can apply to.
Engelhardt Social Justice Fellowship
The Engelhardt provides funding for students to complete an internship at a non-profit of their choosing. Each year the ESJF supports up to 10 undergraduate students from UM-LSA and Transfer Bridges to the Humanities students who propose mutually beneficial projects with a local partner organization.
We will be back on GRCC's campus in the fall.
