Financial Assistance

Q: What scholarship opportunities exist for students in the MSCM Program?

A. There are several scholarships available for graduate study in the field of logistics and supply chain management. 

  • All students admitted to the Master of Supply Chain Management Program are considered for scholarships. No separate application is required. Scholarships typically range from $2,500 to quarter tuition.

  • As members of the Tauber Institute for Global Operations, MSCM students are eligible for a limited number of scholarship opportunities granted by the institute. There is no application process: All students are considered for scholarships and will be notified of awards after they have been admitted into the MSCM Program.

  • The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) has established a scholarship program for graduate students enrolled in programs leading to careers in supply chain management. CSCMP wants to make high-potential students aware of the tremendous opportunities and challenges that may await them in a career in supply chain management.

Q: Are there any paid internship opportunities for MSCM students?

A. Yes, MSCM students engage in a required 14-week team-based summer project with a sponsoring company through a partnership with the Tauber Institute for Global Operations. The project runs from early May to mid-August.

Q: Are there opportunities for MSCM students to acquire research or teaching assistantships?

A. Research and teaching assistantships are separate from the financial aid application process. Check out information for graduate student instructor (GSI) and graduate student staff assistant (GSSA) positions on the University of Michigan Human Resources website: www.hr.umich.edu/acadhr/grads/postings.html

Q: Are there any other opportunities for financial assistance?

A. You may consider asking your employer to support your MSCM education. The one-year program structure with a summer project component is well-suited for company sponsorship. Under this scenario, you will attend Ross for the Winter and Fall terms but may return to your company to undertake a sponsored project. Since the summer project is team-based, your company should be willing to accommodate at least two other students for the summer project course. If your company is interested and wants to discuss this further, ask them to contact us via email at rossmscm@umich.edu.
