Scholarship overview:  This scholarship program is open to first-year students enrolling in their first fall semester at Michigan Technological University.  As a part of the selection process, students will be invited to attend a scholarship event on campus.  Approximately 30 finalists will be invited to campus in February where they will participate in group processing activities and a writing exercise.  More importantly, this visit is designed for students to meet university administrators, faculty, and students to learn more about the business programs available at Michigan Tech.
