Michigan Tech's Presidential Scholars Program rewards academically talented first-year undergraduate students who are Michigan residents. No separate application is necessary.

Incoming first-year students are considered for awards ranging from $1,000 up to $5,500 per year based on a combination of your cumulative high school GPA and/or SAT or ACT score. These awards are renewable for four years (eight semesters) of study.
