A scholarship opportunity for non-Michigan students

Michigan Tech's National Scholars Program rewards academically talented nonresident students who leave their home states to pursue a world-class education at Michigan Tech. This scholarship gives substantial financial assistance—up to $64,000 over four years (eight semesters) of study.

All non-Michigan US residents are automatically considered for this scholarship at time of admission; no separate application is necessary.
