With November as Michigan’s Scholarship Month coming to a close, the Michigan Department of Treasury’s MI Student Aid Team is reminding high school seniors and their families about an online scholarship search tool.
MI Scholarship Search connects students with thousands of scholarships from local organizations throughout the state to help identify opportunities offered within a specific county. Students are encouraged to use this tool throughout the school year because scholarship information is updated regularly.
“MI Student Aid’s MI Scholarship Search tool is an invaluable resource for Michigan students and their families,” said acting Deputy State Treasurer Anne Wohlfert, who oversees Treasury’s student finance programs. “This tool provides an efficient way to look-up and organize a wide variety of local scholarships.”
MI Scholarship Search is a place-based tool, meaning that one of the scholarship components is linked to a Michigan school, county, city or region. The database does not contain Michigan scholarships without a place-based component.
While the MI Student Aid database provides a starting point for finding local scholarships, a successful scholarship application strategy should also include national, state, college or institutional scholarship applications.
To use MI Scholarship Search, go www.michigan.gov/mistudentaid click on “Students and Families.” Students with questions can contact MI Student Aid by email at email@example.com, call 1-888-447-2687 or follow @mistudentaid on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
