Mid Awards Full Ride Scholarships to Outstanding Students

For the twelfth consecutive year, Mid Michigan College has awarded competitive full-ride scholarships to exceptional high school seniors. Laker Distinction (LD) Scholarships are offered to outstanding seniors from high schools across the region.

Students who receive the award have high grade point averages, leadership skills, and are committed to service.  Selection for the scholarship winners occurs over the course of two months as applicants move through a selection process that includes creative response pieces, short essays, and interviews.

“We know that a lot of these high caliber students see Mid as a gateway to their future educations, so we take the selection process very seriously,” said Beth Binder, Director of Admissions at Mid.  “We ensure that the process is impartial, fair, and considers the full scope of abilities that these students possess—we really get to know the applicants as much as possible, and each year are reminded that our local communities include truly remarkable young people.”

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