'U' Offers $1200,000 in Aid Funds

r Approximately $1,200,000 in
scholarships and fellowships of all
kinds are available to University
students, Ivan W. Parker, Assist-
ant Dean of Men and Secretary of'
the Committee on University
Scholarships,, said.
Parker handles about $500,000
of this amount through his office
in the- Student Affairs Building.
There are 118 different scholar-
ship accounts ,processed through
the undergraduate scholarship of-
With only a few exceptions all
the scholarships are being used.
There has been more interest in
scholarships during the past two
years than there had been pre-
viously, Parker said, and between
three and four students apply for
every scholarship lat the present
He said that about twice as
much money for scholarships
could be used to good advantage,

since some applicants do not have
financial need.
Scholarship funds have in-
creased greatly in recent years.
In contrast to $500,000 this year,
in 1949 expendable funds for
scholarships and fellowships to-
taled $237,000.
Growth in the University en-
dowment fund has also been
large. In 1930, the endowment,
fund for fellowships and scholar-,
ships was $1,464,127. In 1956 it
was $7,698,059. Interest from these
funds is used for University schol-
Funds Increase
Amount of the funds in 1956
was over five times as great. as
that in 1930. Average cost of a
year in school now is about double
the $854 average cost in 1930, and
enrollment is a little less than
triple the 1930 figure of 8,751.
Students have a comparable
chance now, though, Parker said.

Some of this is due to the fact
that the University now has a
scholarship office which makes
sure that all available funds are
being utilized.
Freshmen Predominate
Largest number of scholarships
given are the Regents-Alumni
Scholarships which pay tuition
for 1200 Michiganresidents. Over
400 of these are entering fresh-
men this year.
Michigan Alumni Fund pays
the difference between out-of-
state' tuition and in-state tuition
to non-Michigan residents. This
program was started four years
ago with 15 students and now
helps 67 students.
Among the few scholarships not
being used at the present time is
a $500 award to a business or pre-
business student from Ingham
County, Michigan, of which Lan-
sing is the principal city.
