The Falcon Scholars in Action program, is a service-learning program that places UM students in agencies and programs throughout Shelby County, to gain credible experience and training beneficial toward their degree or professional goals, while serving the needs of our community. Examples of services provided include GED/ACT/SAT preparation, tutoring, coordinating physical activities, marketing, administrative duties, and providing training in job skills, computer skills, and social skills. All majors are eligible, and the program seeks diverse experiences for students, that are transferable to their future careers and aspirations.  Students selected are provided with an annual stipend to offset expenses incurred while serving at their assigned agency. Students are chosen through a highly competitive application process and will be enrolled in UM 222, which can be taken for variable credit ranging from 0-3 credit hours.
