Michigan Merit Award | Michigan Merit Scholarship

As the name implies, the Michigan Merit Scholarships were awarded based on scores recorded on the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) test. They were awarded to the graduating classes of 2000-2006. To qualify for a Michigan Merit Award, students had to take the math, reading, science and writing MEAP tests and either score Level I or Level II on all four tests, or score Level I or Level II on two tests and also either Score at the 75th percentile or above on the ACT or SAT or achieve qualifying scores on the ACT WorkKeys job skills assessment tests.

Students of the class of 2005 or prior must have used their scholarships by the 2008-09 school year. Students in the class of 2006 must use their scholarship funds by the 2009-10 academic year. Students from the class of 2007 and after no longer have the Michigan Merit Scholarship, but may be eligible for the Michigan Promise Award. While the award could be as much as $3,000, only a maximum of $1,000 can be used at an out-of-state school.

Those students who will be using the award during the 2009-10 school year must remember to complete the certification process by November 15, 2009. You can do this online at www.michigan.gov/meritaward. If you fail to certify by the deadline, the funds will not be made available for that academic year. Since 2009-10 is the last year to use the award, make sure to certify.
