Financial Aid

Enrolling in the Erb Institute dual degree program is the best investment you can make to prepare for a successful career at the intersection of business and sustainability.

As an Erb student, you will have many options to help finance your education:

During your six semesters at the University of Michigan, you will pay three semesters of tuition to Ross and three semesters to SNRE. Each school sets its own tuition rate each year. See the Ross Tuition and Costs page and the University of Michigan Office of the Registrar website for tuition costs at each school.

Prospective Students

Recruitment Scholarships

The Institute awards scholarships to entering students with the objective of recruiting a student population with diverse backgrounds and exceptional records of professional, academic and community accomplishments. New students are eligible to apply if they have applied to both Ross and SNRE, and have been admitted to at least one school.

Awards are made on a rolling basis, so students are advised to apply as soon as they are eligible.  Scholarship amounts vary, and not every student will receive an award.  Awards are disbursed as tuition credits during a student’s third year in the MBA/MS program.

  • Exploring renewable energy technologies and business models
  • Interning at governments and nonprofits during the summer
  • Reporting on international conferences
