The amount of money provided for these scholarships shall not exceed .0005% of the total general operating budget for the College. The scholarships may cover the cost of tuition, books, and fees. Criteria for the award of the Scholarships may include academic achievement or potential, service to the College and/or community, financial circumstances related to non-eligibility for grants or loans, and other reasons deemed appropriate by the President. For continuance of the scholarship, the student must maintain both a high standard of personal conduct and a minimum of a 2.00 cumulative average.

General Institutional Scholarships

In order to establish and preserve a comprehensive college curriculum, the Board of Trustees authorizes the President to award general institutional scholarships to qualified students in selected academic programs and co-curricular activities. General institutional scholarships may cover up to the full cost of tuition, fees and books. For continuance of scholarship, the student must maintain both a high standard of personal conduct and good academic standing. The amount of money allocated for general institutional scholarships shall be recommended by the President annually during preparation of the College general operating budget.

Senior Adult Scholarships

Senior adults who are 60 years of age or older, and who are residents of the School District of the City of Dearborn, shall receive scholarships in the amount of full tuition and fees which will be paid from the Scholarships and Grants-in-Aid Fund. The College administration is authorized to establish procedures to accomplish this policy and especially to seek ways of reducing barriers that impede our senior adults from full participation in their college.
