 NCIN scholars at the University of Michigan-Flint say that receiving the scholarship compelled them to give back to the community through volunteering. They also appreciate the financial support, the leadership training, the confidence they develop over the course of the program, and the mentoring they receive. Scholars are matched with peer mentors with whom they meet at least twice a month. During the academic year, a joint mentor/mentee event is scheduled, and often led by a community partner.
