Making a Difference Scholarship

The Copper Shores Community Health Foundation Making a Difference Scholarship creates opportunities for undergraduate students who are residents of Baraga, Houghton, Keweenaw, or Ontonagon counties to enter health science and engineering professions.

Award Value: The value of the Copper Shores Making a Difference Scholarship is between $1,000 and $8,000 per year, renewable for up to four years (eight semesters) of study. For those Copper Shores Scholars receiving both the $8,000 value and a Presidential Scholars Award, the value of their Presidential Scholars Award will be included as part of their $8,000 award. Copper Shores Scholars will be priority applicants for a paid Copper Shores Undergraduate Research Internship Program (URIP) through the Pavlis Honors College.
