Michigan ECHO Scholarship

Family celebrating college graduation   

The Michigan Equity, Courage, Hope, and Opportunity (MI ECHO) Scholarship allows people living in Michigan access to associate degree and certificate programs at in-state, public community colleges or tribal colleges. The scholarship covers tuition, contact hours, and other mandatory fees. Through MI ECHO, students can earn an associate degree or certificate to gain stable employment and boost their standard of living.

This last-dollar scholarship is only for people who hold immigration statuses that prevent them from accessing federal financial aid. The candidate must be eligible for acceptance into a certificate or associate degree program and cannot have earned an associate or bachelor's degree in any country.
