Scholarships & Grants

  • The goal of the Student Scholarships and Grants (SSG) is to help students pay for college and provide a "one-stop-shop" for the administration of Michigan's scholarships and grants programs.

MiSSG

  • MiSSG provides students and college financial aid personnel access to records, applications, and information with SSG (High School Counselors will have a portal in Late Fall 2015).  Currently, the Michigan Tuition Grant (MTG) and Michigan Competitive Scholarship (MCS) are the only SSG programs on MiSSG. However, other SSG programs will follow.

    For students to have access to the MiSSG Student Portal they must have a current-year Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file.

    First time users must have their Social Security number when signing up. To begin, click “Sign up” and create a username and password.

    For college financial aid personnel to have access to the MiSSG School User Portal they must complete the College Security Access Form and receive a username and temporary password from SSG.

    For questions about MiSSG, please e-mail SSG@michigan.gov or call 1-888-4-GRANTS. A recorded webinar for aid offices is available and additional video demonstrations are coming soon.


News & Highlights

  • Tuition Incentive Program (TIP) Update

    Beginning with the high school graduation class of 2010, students MUST complete using the Tuition Incentive Program (TIP) within six years from the date of graduation.  Therefore, 2010 grads will expire at the end of the 2015-16 school year. Since this is a new policy change, students must request an extension to be grandfathered in from class years 2006-2009

     Requests can be sent to welchk1@michigan.gov or faxed to 517-241-5835. Requests are not guaranteed for approval.
