The Michigan Equity, Courage, Hope, and Opportunity (MI ECHO) Scholarship allows people living in Michigan to access associate's degree and certificate programs for free. The scholarship covers tuition, contact hours, and other mandatory fees. Through MI ECHO, students can earn a degree or certificate to gain stable employment and boost their standard of living.
This scholarship is only for people who cannot access federal financial aid and who worked on the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic. 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.
Full scholarship requirements and application instructions are available at michiganecho.org.
MCAN is hiring a College Completion Corps coach who will work directly with MI ECHO Scholarship recipients. The coach will work in partnership with campus staff to help students persist through the completion of their degree or certificate.
