The Community Choice Foundation empowers students to achieve their dreams while remaining in Michigan. When a student receives financial support, they are pledging to use their education to Give Big™ in Michigan by living and working here after graduation. Our goal is to create a diverse talent pipeline for Michigan while making education accessible and affordable.
Graduating High School
Graduating high school is the first step to higher education. Community Choice offers $5,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors with the desire to attend college in Michigan.
We believe that learning is a life-long process. That’s why we are offering $2,500 and $5,000 continuing education scholarships to students looking to further their studies. Scholarship amount is based on pursued program and funds available at time of awarding.
Skilled trades will play an important role in Michigan’s future. We offer $2,500 scholarships for students who are seeking vocational training or certification through accredited programs.
Share your email and we will notify you when you can apply for a scholarship.
Application is expected to be open in December 2023.
