MI STUDENT AID

Local scholarships provide the best odds due to the fact that they are open to a smaller group of students. Many of these local scholarships are provided through the community foundation in your county; check with teachers, guidance counselors and even Google to track down the best scholarships that could be right in your hometown. Our customer care unit is available to help students with their search too. With a simple phone call to 1-888-4-GRANTS, our team will look up scholarships based on where you live and what your interests are.
