Police and Fire Fighter's Survivor Tuition Grant

The Police Officer’s and Fire Fighter’s Survivor Tuition Act (STG) was established in 1996, (P.A. 195) to provide for a waiver of tuition at state public institutions of higher education for children and surviving spouses of Michigan police officers and firefighters killed in the line of duty.

Students must be the spouse or the natural or adopted child of a deceased officer or firefighter. Children must be under the age of 21 at the time of the death; and must also apply for the first time before the age of 26.

This program was previously administered by the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES) and was moved to the Department of Treasury, Student Scholarships and Grants Division in 2010.

Additional information and eligibility requirements are on the STG Fact Sheet.
