This is the seventh year that Mid Michigan College plans to award competitive full ride scholarships to eight exceptional high school seniors. Laker Distinction (LD) Scholarships are offered at two award levels, with four of each given to deserving students.

The scholarship’s traditional level provides for 31 credits worth of tuition and fees. Presidential LD Scholarships, the highest awards, include 62 credits (the equivalent of an associate degree) worth of tuition and fees. The Presidential LD Scholarship is renewable and also includes a $500/semester stipend for books and school supplies.

Selection for the 2018 scholarships occurs over the course of three months, and applicants attend two events at Mid as they progress through the process. Final determinations are based on the students’ leadership, service, and academic performance.

To qualify for LD Scholarships, applicants must be Michigan high school seniors with a 3.5 GPA or better.They must also RSVP for and attend the scholarship’s first selection event, which is held at the College’s Mt. Pleasant Campus on November 10 at 11am.RSVP’s can be placed online at

“It’s always rewarding to see how many exceptional students apply for these scholarships, and we hope to see those numbers grow in 2018,” says Brent Mishler, Mid’s Director of Admissions.“It’s extremely hard to narrow down our final selection to just eight competitors—there are so many remarkable local students.”
