The University of Michigan has replaced scholarships that were scrapped after a voter-approved ban on preferential treatment based on race and gender.
The university yesterday unveiled two scholarships. The Michigan Tradition Award and Michigan Experience Award provide $10,000 a year for up to four eligible freshman from low-income families.
Officials also say they have raised $12 million from 3,500 donors for financial aid that will be matched by the university to maintain a diverse campus. The money was raised in eight months.
University officials were forced to change their admissions policies after voters approved Proposal Two in November.
