Rebuilding Michigan - one scholarship at a time!

Updated Date ==> Application deadline for 2017 submittals is April 1, 2017  <==

Are you sick and tired of watching people and companies leaving Michigan for greener pastures?

We at the S.E.T. Educational Fund are doing something about it.  The S.E.T. Educational Fund was founded in Michigan in 1998 in order to provide scholarships to Michigan residents attending Michigan colleges.  We select community minded individuals that have excelled scholastically while volunteering their time to help others.

 

It is our hope that this grass roots endeavor will entice our residents to stay in Michigan and to help others.  The results so far have been a success!  To date, we have given out 16 scholarships to deserving Michiganders.  Our winners boast a 90+% graduation rate and some of our early winners have now joined the ranks of our donors.

 

Not only will our next scholarship financially help a Michigan resident, it will have far reaching effects since it helps the local community, the local colleges/universities, and the businesses looking for an educated work force.  This year we are giving out 2 scholarships of $5500 each!

 

In addition, our 501c3 charity (tax-deductible) is unique in one fashion: the donors within that given year vote for the scholarship winner(s). Your money isn't sent through some impersonal process with significant overhead and no say into how the funds are distributed. You have a chance to shape Michigan's direction.

 

So apply, get involved, or simply donate ... but help us rebuild our beloved Michigan."

 

"This scholarship is not only a check to me, but a promise.  A promise that one day I will help others as you have helped me"
