Impact Scholarship Winners
Congratulations to Michigan Tech’s Impact Scholarship winners! The School of Business and Economics Impact Scholarship recognizes Michigan high school seniors who have demonstrated leadership experience and academic success both in and outside the classroom, and are planning to major in accounting, economics, engineering management, finance management, management information systems, or marketing.
Blake Hund, Impact Full-Tuition Scholarship
Management Information Systems
Incoming freshman Blake Hund (Rochester Hills, MI) views the Impact full-tuition scholarship as his ticket to a top-notch education in Management Information Systems (MIS). Not only does it allow him to combine his two favorite passions, business and technology, but he’ll later graduate with little-to-no-debt.
“It really means a lot to be selected,” he says. “I’m looking forward to studying in a field that interests me while enjoying all of the things that Michigan Tech offers, including Mont Ripley and Winter Carnival.”
Back home in Rochester Hills, Blake was actively involved in high school and his community. From senior meal deliveries and service projects to a mission trip to Haiti, giving back is second nature. He fostered strong relationships with business teachers to learn as much as he could before college.
An added bonus to attending one of the top universities in Michigan is its location. “The campus is so beautiful and will provide a change of scenery for the next four years,” Blake says. “I love the outdoors and will enjoy all that the Upper Peninsula has to offer.”
