What if I need to take a "scholarship leave of absence"?
But we recognize that life happens. If you are not able to be continuously enrolled, you may apply for a 'leave of absence' from the scholarship when you're ready to resume your studies at your college. If approved, you may be able to continue receiving the scholarship award.
Your college will be responsible for reviewing, processing, and approving leave of absences from the Michigan Reconnect scholarship program. If you want to learn more about it to see if it’s the right option for you and how to apply for it, reach out to your college’s office of financial aid.
