Midland Believes is a different kind of scholarship targeting economically disadvantaged and first-generation college-going students i.e. none of the parents/guardians have earned a college degree.
After state and federal aid, these students are left with an average cost of $4,000 to complete a two-year degree or certificate. Additionally, mentoring is often needed during their critical first year of college. The Midland Believes Scholarship helps with both aspects. The long-term goal is to lower the number of Midland County residents dependent on government and social supports.
