Michigan Achievement Skills Scholarship Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Michigan Achievement Skills Scholarship?

For students interested in enrolling with an eligible career training program, the Michigan Achievement Scholarship program offers a Skills Scholarship that provides up to $2,000, per year, for up to two years.
