Non-Michigan residents can earn $17,000 or a full-tuition scholarship.

I'm not sure if this is where you can write questions. But I have one. I'm out of state. Are you considering any other criteria, or is the decision mainly decided on the essay?

Hi Emilie. I believe we answered this last night, but if you still have questions, let me know. I will email you soon with an answer to your other question.

Hi Marilyn. The event is now available on demand. If you continue to have difficulty, let me know. We don't have any settings that would restrict who can view the video.

I can't attend live but I have a few questions I'm hoping you can answer for when I watch the event later. 1. If you (those on the financial aid staff) were to answer the prompt, what question would you choose to answer? 2. What qualities are you looking for in the winning student(s) and/or essay(s)? Thank you in advance!
