Scholarships and Student Financial Aid

Effective Date: 02/24/2011

9.4 Michigan Technological University Leading Scholar Award

Open to first-time domestic freshmen displaying outstanding academic achievement, leadership, creative abilities and high potential for success at Michigan Technological University, for a four year period (8 semesters).

Awards are renewable for second, third, and fourth year students who maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 as of the end of spring semester, acceptable social behavior, and continuous regular full-time undergraduate enrollment.

No replacements are made for students who withdraw.

Scholarship Committee considers requests for extensions of scholarships, but in no case would they be extended beyond 9 semesters. The 9 semesters would apply to those students required to attend a summer semester or who demonstrate extenuating circumstances.

Applicants must be residents of the State of Michigan.
