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 December where they will participate in group processing activities. 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.

Students graduating from high schools within Houghton, Keweenaw, and Baraga counties (and have commuter status) are exempt from the on-campus living requirement. Students are eligible for the award for a maximum of eight semesters of undergraduate study.
