Grants and scholarships for Michigan veterans
During FY 2017 over 900 students in the State of Michigan grants and scholarships application system claimed veteran status. Of these, just 101 were awarded grants or scholarships through the State of Michigan.
From the 101 veterans who did receive grant and scholarship aid from the state in FY 2017, 45 percent chose to attend independent, non-profit colleges and universities.
While only a small share of veterans receive scholarships from the state, including the Michigan Competitive Scholarship, the Michigan Tuition Grant, and other programs, MICU member institutions do more to provide additional grants to veterans to ensure their success in higher education.
