MTG recipients complete degrees sooner
Grants and scholarships are meaningful for Michigan's students. Receiving a grant to help pay for college helps students not only reduce the amount of loans they need to take but also reduces financial anxiety around paying for college leading to better outcomes.
The Michigan Tuition Grant gives students with financial need an extra boost in funding and also encourages students to complete their degree on time.
During the 2017-2018 academic year one-third of all graduates from Michigan's independent colleges and universities were recipients of the Michigan Tuition Grant. These students were able to complete their bachelor's degree in an average of four years.
Compare this to the average for non-tuition grant recipients who completed a bachelor's degree at the state-wide average of five years.
Michigan Tuition Grant recipients complete degrees 21 percent sooner than students who do not receive the grant.
