The University recently announced several scholarship opportunities as part of its commitment to making Adventist education as affordable as possible for all students. Meanwhile, the state of Michigan has launched new tuition grants to address a growing teacher shortage and improve access to education and skills training for its residents.
Beginning in fall 2023, Michigan residents enrolling in any undergraduate program at Andrews can apply for the state’s Michigan Achievement Scholarship, which is worth up to $4,000 annually and renewable for up to five years. Through the state’s MI Future Educator Fellowship program, Michigan residents working on their initial teacher certification at Andrews and other participating institutions may also receive up to $10,000 per year for three years. A second program, the MI Future Educator Stipend, offers up to $9,600 in additional financial assistance during their student teaching experience.
Andrews undergraduates, including those majoring in education, can further reduce their tuition costs by combining these state grants with new and existing scholarships offered by the University. Starting in fall 2023, freshmen who demonstrate leadership experience and/or potential will receive a new one-time $750 Leadership Scholarship, in addition to the $8,000 to $14,000 Andrews Partnership Scholarship (APS) already available to every admitted freshman. For transfer students, the current $3,000 to $9,000 APS will increase in fall 2023 to match the $8,000 to $14,000 given to freshmen. The APS for international students is also increasing. Previously dependent on academic performance, the new APS will be a flat rate: $14,000 (excluding Canada).
“Preparing the next generation of Adventist educators is not only an important part of Andrews’ mission, it is critical to the future of Adventist education,” says Tony Yang, vice president for Strategy, Marketing & Enrollment and Chief Communication Officer. “These new scholarships and state grants will help remove financial barriers that might otherwise discourage prospective teachers and other students from pursuing their God-given callings.”
