Scholarships to Eastern now available to district students

Students at Wayne Memorial and John Glenn high schools have a chance to further their educations at Eastern Michigan University without debt.

Eastern officials have partnered with the school district to offer students from the high schools and the William D. Ford Career-Technical Center the opportunity to earn the Education First Opportunity Scholarship. Education First Opportunity Scholarship (EFOS) will help eligible students receive free tuition through a combination of federal Pell Grants and EMU  funds. To be eligible for the scholarship, students must have a 3.0 GPA and a minimum ACT composite of 20. The scholarship offers full tuition minus the Federal Pell Grant money a student receives.

Founded in 1849, Eastern is the second oldest public university in Michigan. It currently serves nearly 16,000 students pursuing undergraduate, graduate, specialist, doctoral and certificate degrees in the arts,

sciences and professions. In all, more than 300 majors, minors and concentrations are delivered through

the University Colleges of Arts and Sciences; Business; Education; Engineering and Technology; Health and Human Services and graduate school.
