The U.P. Scholars program provides “substantial scholarship aid for four years of undergraduate study at U-M exclusively to incoming students from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.” In her position at U-M, Marlin helps “develop, implement, and evaluate targeted programs and strategies to enhance student success for undergraduate students from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.”

Prior to joining the University of Michigan, Cheyenne held positions at the American Indian College Fund and the University of Minnesota, Morris, serving Native American and Alaska Native students in academic student success. Cheyenne earned a BA from Northern Michigan University and a Masters of Education from Grand Valley State University.”
In this episode, David and Cheyenne discuss the U.P. Scholars Program scholarship, what it covers, how students can apply, what the experience is like for the students who are selected to be U.P. Scholars, and how this program relates to other scholarships available to students.
