The Stiger family seeks to help students in Michigan that seek a more technical path following their high school education.
The aim is to help high-achieving students who are not interested in four-year bachelor degrees from state and private universities, but instead are choosing to pursue higher education through skilled trades in an accredited technical program. The Stiger Technical Scholarship will support students and their passion for a more hands-on career in trades such as electrician, welding, carpentry, HVAC, automotive restoration, etc.
High school seniors from Michigan are eligible to apply if they are pursuing a trade after high school. To apply, write about the field of study you wish to pursue and what that career path means to you. All finalists, must also submit a letter of recommendation.
Please share the field of study you're pursuing and what makes you passionate about it. What does it mean to you to begin a career in that field?

The winner will be publicly announced on Feb 20, 2024. 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.
