About the University of Michigan and Scholarship
A public research institution in Ann Arbor, Michigan is known as the University of Michigan (U-M, UofM, UMich, or just Michigan).

Currently, it has over 32,000 undergraduate and 16,000 graduate students enrolled.
Nineteen colleges make up the institution, which provides degree programs in almost 250 subjects at the undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral levels.

Additionally, Michigan maintains a facility in Detroit and has affiliations with two nearby institutions, those in Flint and Dearborn.

It is listed as one of the “R1: Doctoral Universities – Very High Research Activity” institutions and is a founding member of the Association of American Universities.
