    The Michigan Education Trust (MET) was created on December 23, 1986 when then Governor James Blanchard signed into law Public Act 316 of 1986. The preamble of the law includes language declaring "it is an essential function of state government to encourage attendance at state institutions of higher education" and that "students in elementary and secondary schools tend to achieve a higher standard of performance when the payment of tuition for their higher education is secured" (Public Act 316 of 1986, Sec. 2). 

    The MET Charitable Tuition Program is a way for organizations to purchase from one to four years of college for a deserving individual in their community at a price that's discounted especially for this program.

    Act 525 Of 2008 Fostering Futures Scholarship Trust Fund Section 722.1023 creates the Fostering Futures Scholarship Trust Fund, the mission of which is to provide scholarships to former foster youth enrolled at Michigan colleges and universities.
