Scholarship Criteria

Each year the Michigan State University Oakland Spartans dedicates some of its funds to give out in scholarships. The scholarships are available to Oakland County high school seniors and seniors who reside in Oakland County but may attend a high school outside of Oakland County. These seniors must have been accepted for study at Michigan State University and are planning to attend the next academic year.

When judging the applicant, our alumni board weighs academic background, test scores, favorable recommendations and comments made by the student on the applications. Students should have at least an overall 3.5 academic average on a 4.0 scale (unweighted) or equivalent. (Slightly lower averages may be considered.) Financial need is not a requirement.

The scholarship is nonrenewable and is paid in two installments during the freshman year.
