Michigan Scholarships

Michigan is also known as the Great Lakes State. It is the 9th most populous state in the nation. Its capitol is Lansing and its largest city is Detroit. It was made the 26th state in 1837.

Michigan is home to more than 110 colleges, universities and trade schools. Some of the bigger schools include University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Western Michigan University and Wayne State University. However, the state has more than large research universities to offer. Some of its finest schools are smaller liberal arts colleges such as Kalamazoo College and Hope College in Holland, Michigan.

The state is known as the capitol of the automobile industry in the nation. This is owing to the fact that the top three manufacturers of autos are based in or around Detroit. Other large industries in the state include information technology, aerospace and copper and iron ore mining. Scholarship opportunities exist in Michigan for fields such as those listed above as well as many more.
