60,000 MI students receive state grants & scholarships
Approximately 335,000 students from MI were enrolled in a degree- or certificate-seeking college or university program in the state in 2017-2018. These students were enrolled at Michigan's independent, non-profit colleges and universities, public universities, and community colleges.
About 20 percent of these students received a need-based grant or scholarship from the State of Michigan to help them achieve their academic goals and increase Michigan's educational attainment.
The State of Michigan offers several need-based grants for students seeking a degree or certificate at a Michigan college or university. The three largest programs are the Michigan Competitive Scholarship (MCS), the Tuition Incentive Program (TIP), and the Michigan Tuition Grant (MTG). In 2017-2018, nearly 75,00 grant awards were made to approximately 60,000 Michigan students.
This means that one in five degree-seeking MI undergraduates benefit from these important programs.
Thank you to the Michigan Legislature for supporting the state's students!
