College can feel impossible to afford when you’re a low-income student.
Rising tuition costs have resulted in only half of low-income students enrolling in college as compared to over 80% of their high-income peers. Low-income students often don’t receive the support they need to pay for and successfully complete college.
In order to help break down these barriers, this scholarship seeks to make higher education accessible for low-income students living in Michigan.
High school students from low-income families living in Michigan with a 2.5 GPA or higher may apply for this scholarship.

The scholarship award is $515 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 10, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
