Exercise Class Scholarships

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Spring/Summer session of MHealthy Exercise and Relaxation Classes has been canceled. We hope to bring in-person classes back in the fall and will keep you posted. In the meantime, free live exercise and relaxation classes are available to university faculty and staff on Workplace. Thank you for your continued support!

MHealthy’s scholarship program removes the financial barrier that might prevent a U-M staff or faculty member from participating in an MHealthy exercise and relaxation class. If you are interested in moving more and relieving stress and are eligible, we encourage you to apply for a scholarship!

Who’s Eligible

You must meet the following requirements to qualify for a scholarship:

  • Full-time benefits-eligible faculty and staff member
  • Earn $45,000 or less per year

How to Apply

Each session, a limited number of scholarships are available and will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis. If interested, we encourage you to apply early. 

You must re-apply for a scholarship each class session. MHealthy offers three sessions per year – winter, spring/summer, and fall. Scholarship application dates:

  • The next scholarship application will be available mid-late March.

What Classes are Eligible?

Nearly all MHealthy Exercise and Relaxation Classes are eligible. Each session, you will have the opportunity to choose from more than 100 onsite classes, including cardio, yoga, strength training and more. The scholarship covers the cost of one 14- or 15-week class per session.

The only MHealthy classes that are not eligible are those offered by third party contractors or outside vendors, such as Bodies in Balance.

Notification and Next Steps:

MHealthy will notify all applicants on whether they received a scholarship before December 23, 2019 when classes begin.

If you are awarded a scholarship:

  • MHealthy will ask you to provide your top three class choices. 
  • You must also agree to the following requirements:
    • Agree to the MHealthy Scholarship Policies
    • Attend at least six classes per session 
    • Complete a post-class survey at the end of the session
    • Failure to meet the above requirements could result in loss of scholarship for future sessions.
