The Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity has announced that over 62,000 people have been accepted for Michigan Reconnect scholarships in the last six weeks.
The Michigan Reconnect program was launched to make it easier and affordable for Michiganders to earn an associate degree or skills certificate at their local community college or private training school.
Reconnect scholarships are accepted by all Michigan community colleges and are available to eligible adults already enrolled in their local community college.
To be eligible, you must be at least 25 years old when applying, have lived in Michigan for a year or more, have a high school diploma and not yet completed a college degree.
