Criteria: Merit-based scholarship awarded to non-Michigan residents of the US and Canada.
How to Apply: Incoming first-year students who have applied and been accepted for undergraduate admission to Michigan Tech are automatically considered for this award.
Value: For new first-year students enrolling at Michigan Tech in the fall of 2022, values of the National Scholars Award are variable from $10,000 to $16,000 based on academic record. In the spirit of philanthropy some or all of a scholarship may be funded by a generous donor to the university.
Students will be considered based on a combination of cumulative high school GPA and official ACT and SAT scores.
Students without official ACT or SAT scores will be considered for awards based on GPA only.

Renewal Criteria: Scholarship recipients must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.50 at the end of each spring semester. Continuous, regular full-time undergraduate enrollment of at least 12 credits and acceptable social behavior must also be maintained. Recipients are required to live in University housing for the first two academic years--four academic semesters (not including summers), to maintain this scholarship. Students are eligible for this award for a maximum of eight semesters of undergraduate study.
Exclusion: Students eligible for Institutional general fund awards such as the Alumni Legacy Award or Military Family Education Award are not eligible for a National Scholars Award. They are, however, eligible for need based aid and/or private scholarship funds. Students receiving the National Business Scholars Award are also not eligible to receive a National Scholars Award. National Scholars Award and National Business Scholars Award recipients who are subsequently classified as Michigan Residents by Michigan Tech in accordance with institutional policy will receive in-state tuition rates and be considered for our in-state Presidential Scholars Award. As a part of this process, the National Scholars Award or National Business Scholars Award will be cancelled.
