Rising Michigan Leader Scholarship Fund

Michigan fam,

It has been 5 years since the inception of the Rising Michigan Leader Scholarship Program (RMLSP) fundraiser, and to date, we have helped over 5 students with their educational needs at the University of Michigan.

In this, our fifth year, we aspire to provide 5 additional scholarships - $500 each - to deserving Michigan-bound Detroit high school students.

Consider the power of 5 - the extension of our 5 fingers (okay, 4 and a thumb), grabbing 5 friends, helping 5 freshmen get about 5 books - what a perfect year to celebrate and contribute!
