Advising & Support

At the Stamps School of Art & Design, our Advising Team supports students every step of the way: from orientation to graduation. We are here to help you succeed.

Under­grad­u­ate Advising

Stu­dents meet 1 – 1 with their advi­sor a min­i­mum of six times through­out their Stamps edu­ca­tion. Peer Advi­sors — upper-class stu­dents who know the ropes — are avail­able every week to assist with Inter­na­tional Expe­ri­ence ques­tions, course sched­ul­ing, and other con­cerns. Dur­ing junior year, stu­dents for­mally secure a fac­ulty men­tor to offer addi­tional coach­ing on course rec­om­men­da­tions, career tra­jec­to­ries and pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties, and ways to deepen cre­ative practice.

The Stamps Advis­ing Team is com­mit­ted to mak­ing sure that stu­dents have the guid­ance they need to make the most from their time at the Uni­ver­sity of Michigan.

    Under­grad­u­ate Finan­cial Support

    In addi­tion to the finan­cial aid stu­dents can apply for at the Uni­ver­sity level, Stamps stu­dents are also eli­gi­ble for addi­tional finan­cial support.

    Schol­ar­ship Support

    All appli­cants to the Stamps School of Art & Design are auto­mat­i­cally con­sid­ered for need and merit-based schol­ar­ship sup­port — includ­ing sup­port for com­puter pack­age require­ments. No need to fill out sep­a­rate appli­ca­tions — your admis­sions appli­ca­tion to Stamps has you covered.

    Intern­ship Grants

    Not all intern­ships are paid — or pay well enough to keep stu­dents afloat in New York City, San Fran­cisco, and other cities with high costs of liv­ing. Stamps Intern­ship Grants help to alle­vi­ate this strain — and play a crit­i­cal role in help­ing our stu­dents pur­sue their dream jobs with gusto.

    Inter­na­tional Expe­ri­ence Funding

    The Stamps Inter­na­tional Expe­ri­ence is a crit­i­cal hall­mark of your degree. It is required for BFA stu­dents and BA stu­dents who reside in the U.S. The Stamps School offers awards for stu­dents with demon­strated need to help defray costs asso­ci­ated with inter­na­tional travel. Cost should not be the decid­ing fac­tor of where you go and what you learn — and Inter­na­tional Expe­ri­ence grants are one way that Stamps can help.

    Emer­gency Funding

    The Stamps Stu­dent Emer­gency Fund can help Stam­pers who encounter unex­pected emer­gen­cies dur­ing their degree pro­gram and those who are feel­ing the finan­cial impacts of COVID-19. Whether it’s to cover costs asso­ci­ated with hous­ing, emer­gency travel, food expenses, tech­nol­ogy access, med­ical and den­tal expenses, or other one-time unan­tic­i­pated expenses, this fund helps our stu­dents in their great­est times of need.
