Applications open for President’s Honors Scholarship

September 30, 2020

Applications are now being accepted for the President’s Honors Scholarship, a full-ride scholarship that covers two years of tuition, fees and books for incoming Delta College students.

The academic-based scholarship is for high school students in Bay, Midland and Saginaw counties who will graduate in 2021. Students interested in applying can get started by completing a Delta College admissions application and following the steps listed on the scholarships website.    

“Now more than ever, students in our district need our support,” said Dr. Jean Goodnow, president of Delta College. “This scholarship is just one way we are helping students attend college, receive a high-quality education and ultimately, get their dream job.”

The deadline to apply is Wednesday, November 11. Twenty scholarships will be awarded. SAT scores are required to apply for the scholarship, but due to delays related to COVID-19, scores will be accepted until December 1. Send the scores to honors@delta.edu.
