Updates on previous legislation:

SB 1335 HB 6502 - The governor signed into law changes to the Michigan Merit Award, now called the Michigan Promise. Beginning with this year's seniors, every student in Michigan will be eligible for a $4,000 scholarship. Students who achieve the required score will receive $1,000 during their freshman and sophomore years in college. After they successfully complete two years of post-secondary education, students would net another $2,000. Students who don't achieve the required score can still earn the entire $4,000 scholarship by successfully completing two years of post-secondary education. Students must maintain a 2.5 grade point average in their post-secondary institution to earn a Michigan Promise scholarship when they reach the two-year point.
