Michigan is surrounded by four beautiful Great Lakes and is the only state with two separate peninsulas, creatively known as the Upper and Lower Peninsulas, home to Yoopers and Trolls respectively. The state has some beautiful parks and shorelines and is great for outdoorsy people. Admitted to the Union in 1837, Michigan stands in the Upper Midwest as America's 10th most populous state with approximately 10 million people. College students are often attracted to Michigan's auto industry, boating on 64,980 inland lakes, Motown music, and stunning scenery like Sleeping Bear Dunes. There is a diverse set of 98 colleges in Michigan from rural Olivet to bustling Detroit. The state also has a pretty awesome university research corridor, with the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor), Michigan State University, and Wayne State University all in relatively close proximity. Also, a healthy rivalry between UMich and MSU. 

What are Michigan Scholarships?

One of the more frequently overlooked sources of grants and college scholarships for students is their own state government. The average tuition & fees is $15,558 for Michigan residents and $51,200 for out-of-state students. There is a variety of grant and scholarship programs sponsored by the state government of Michigan to help those students who are unable to find the money they need to pay for their college education. The Student Financial Aid Department of the State of Michigan administered these programs and are open to all qualifying students who reside within the state. 

There is a wide variety of general scholarships and grants supported by Michigan’s state government which are designed to encourage and support the continuing education of its resident students. These programs are a combination of need-based and merit-based awards and offer varying amounts of financial support. However, programs are subject to change without notice, and students in the Great Lakes State are encouraged to monitor the government’s Student Financial Aid Website to stay informed as to the status of available grants and scholarships.
