Lloyd & Laurie Carr Scholarship
The Lloyd & Laurie Carr Scholarship extends an award of $3,500 to one outstanding freshman applicant to the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor. The Lloyd & Laurie Carr Scholarship does consider economic need,(as determined by the Office of Financial Aid at the University of Michigan).
This award was established in 2008 for students who wish to attend the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor. However, they require additional funds to proceed with their dream. President Mary Sue Coleman established a matching fund arrangement that was raised by the Greater Detroit Club members, which allowed the establishment of this scholarship.
This award is named in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Carr. Lloyd Carr served on the Michigan Football coaching staff for 28 years. He was head coach from 1995 to 2007. His teams won 75% of their games and 5 Big Ten Conference Championships along with 6 bowl titles. His 1997 Team won the National Championship, he was voted National Coach of the Year and Charles Woodson was awarded the Heisman Trophy. Coach Carr has received a number of additional national honors, including the Bobby Dodd award. In 2011 he was inducted into the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame and the National Football Hall of Fame. He and his wife Laurie have had a major impact in their support of the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.
