November has officially been declared scholarship month in Michigan! All month long, MI Student Aid will be actively posting on social media to celebrate. We will be highlighting our very own scholarship database, compiled of Michigan scholarships, where students can submit a request and get scholarships sent right to their email inbox. We will have tips and tricks for filling out the perfect scholarship application in order to help students with their search. We will also be discussing the various scholarships and grants programs provided by the State of Michigan as well as other resources, beyond scholarships, that can help make college Accessible, Affordable and Achievable for Michigan students and families.

Seniors! Baker has invited the senior class to their annual Career Exploration Day. It will be held on October 13 and we will be attending the morning session. You will get to explore the many programs offered at Baker, but most importantly you will get an up close look at career opportunities you may not have considered yet. This is a great learning experience and lots of fun. Click here for more information.
Please click the button below to get registered for the event.
As of October 1, the FAFSA became available for completion. Once you have your FSA ID (one for you and one for a parent), you are able to begin. Click the link below for the FAFSA website. Make sure you are filling out the form for the 2018-2019 school year as this will be your first year in college.
PLEASE REMEMBER!!!! The FAFSA is FREE so if you are on a website that asks you for money, you are not in the right place.
October is Michigan College Month! The goal for the state of Michigan is to have all seniors complete a college application as well as their FAFSA during the month of October. Many colleges are participating by waiving their application fee, so applying is FREE!! Check out the list by clicking HERE.
Please revisit the college visit link. CMU has rescheduled their visit and Mid Michigan Community College has been added (Oct. 31). Make sure you are signed up!
The rep for CMU has rescheduled her visit. She will be here on October 20 at 2:00 pm instead of the 18th. Please make a note of the change.
