MI Student Aid
The Michigan Competitive Scholarship is available to undergraduate students pursuing their first degree and is based on both financial need and merit. To be considered, a student must take the SAT (Class of 2017 and beyond) prior to entering college and achieve a qualifying score of at least 1200.
Applicants must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1.
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.
The Federal processors must receive the FAFSA by March 1 each year.
Program eligibility ends when a student has received a baccalaureate degree, after completing the equivalent of ten semesters (or term equivalent), or when a student has been out of high school over ten years, whichever occurs first. Future awards are subject to available and approved funding.
Michigan community college, public university, or degree-granting, non-profit independent college (cannot be an institution whose primary purpose is to prepare students for ordination or appointment as a member of the clergy of a church, denomination, or religious sect).
Awards are restricted to tuition and mandatory fees. Awards pay up to a maximum of $1,000 per academic year.
Public Act 208 of 1964.
