Description: Michigan Retailers Foundation, established in 1968, provides college scholarships annually to benefit retailers and their employees and families. Twenty-five scholarships will be given out in 2021. These awards are for one year and are not based on financial need.

Application requirements for the Michigan Retailers Association (MRA) Scholarship Program are:

  • Application form
  • Transcript
  • SAT/ACT scores
Additional Information: An independent selection committee will evaluate the applications and select the winners. The committee will consider: academic achievements and records; community involvement; and extracurricular activities, including, but not limited to, retail employment. Students must attend institutions that are accredited, non-profit, two or four-year colleges/universities in the United States. A student may transfer from one institution to another and retain the award. The philosophy of the Michigan Retailers Association Scholarship Program differs from traditional scholarship programs that reward only the highest level of academic achievement. Michigan Retailers Association scholarships will be awarded to deserving students whose academic credentials fall within an average to above-average range. In general, average and above-average credentials are, for high school seniors, those that rank a student in the top half of their senior class. Standardized test scores should be at least 18 for the ACT Composite or, for the SAT combined Critical Reading and Math scores, at least 850. Students enrolled in college should present college GPAs that range from 2.50 to 4.00 on a 4.00 scale, in addition to having the proper high school credentials. Consideration also is given for extra curricular activities, including, but not limited to, part-time retail employment.

Award Amount: Awards range from $1,000 to $1,500.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $39,000.
