ScholarPOWER Banquet

The 2018 ScholarPOWER Academic Awards Banquet
Information coming soon!

ScholarPOWER is a key component of CEDO’s mission to help students advance and excel at every level. ScholarPOWER is a comprehensive suite of educational support services designed to build community and academic, personal and professional development. 


ScholarPOWER Forums
Forums provide interactive academic, personal, and professional development activities and workshops that address a wide range of subjects with a direct bearing on academic achievement. Recent topics have included improving grade point averages; finding the right internship; time management; test preparation and study skills; conflict management; and team building. Many of these forums are facilitated by staff, faculty or corporate partners.  

ScholarPOWER Peer Mentoring Program
First-year students are matched with upper-class students who help them become acclimated to student life and become aware of campus resources available in Michigan Engineering. This helps make a large campus feel smaller and easier to navigate while adjusting to the academic rigors and social orientations of life on campus. The mentors are trained to assist in not only academic life but also the social and personal elements of transitioning into life as a Michigan engineer.  Click HERE to find out more information on how to become a CEDO Mentor.

ScholarPOWER Tutoring & Supplemental Instruction
Partnering with the Engineering Learning Center (ELC), CEDO provides students with free peer tutoring and weekly supplemental instruction. Tutoring is available for most first and second-year core courses in a drop-in format. Supplemental instruction utilizes a small group collaborative learning environment that focuses on conceptual understanding, implementation of strategic study habits for particular courses, and exam preparation. 

Annual ScholarPOWER Academic Awards Banquet
The ScholarPOWER Academic Awards Banquet is an annual tribute to those students who have participated in various ScholarPOWER Initiatives and earned exemplary academic standing or shown substantially improved performance.

ScholarPOWER Recruitment Weekend
Admitted students and their parents join us for a fun and engaging campus program where they will experience the opportunities that make Michigan Engineering a preeminent academic community! In this special visit, they will attend the ScholarPOWER Recruitment Dinner, meet faculty members, connect with students and tour the University.
