MI Student Aid
The Fostering Futures Scholarship provides scholarships to students who have experienced foster care in Michigan on or after age 13. Students must also demonstrate financial need to qualify.
An application is required and must be completed annually during the open enrollment period.
Applicants must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The first institution listed on the FAFSA will be considered the priority school. Students are responsible for notifying MI Student Aid of a change in their college choice. This can be done through the MiSSG Student Portal or by calling 1-888-447-2687.
Eligible students must apply each year by June 30.
