LANSING, Mich. (WJRT) – The Michigan (MI) Achievement Scholarship program was signed into law by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in 2022.

The scholarships are renewable for up to three years at a community college and up to five years at a private college or public university, totaling up to:
- $8,250 at community college
