State Treasurer: Michigan Achievement Scholarship Provides Affordability and Opportunity for Michigan Students, Families
February 06, 2023
State Treasurer Rachael Eubanks today encouraged Michigan students and families to unlock the assistance available from the Michigan Achievement Scholarship by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
“The Michigan Achievement Scholarship really is a game changer in bringing college affordability and opportunity to many students and families that simply hasn’t been available in previous years,” State Treasurer Rachael Eubanks said. “This scholarship can reduce the costs for post-secondary degrees and certificates at eligible training providers, community colleges, tribal colleges, and public and private universities in Michigan. I strongly encourage students and families to complete the FAFSA so they can unlock this potential financial assistance and make the dreams of a higher education possible.”
Students who graduate from high school in Michigan with a diploma or certificate of completion or achieved a high school equivalency certificate in 2023 or after will be eligible for more financial aid from the state of Michigan:
- Up to $2,000 if they attend an eligible training provider in Michigan, per year, up to two years
- Up to $2,750 if they attend a Michigan community college, per year, up to three years
- Up to $4,000 if they attend a Michigan private college or university, per year, up to five years
- Up to $5,500 if they attend a Michigan public university, per year, up to five years
Completion of the FAFSA is required to be considered for the Michigan Achievement Scholarship. To get started with the FAFSA, go to www.fafsa.gov.
