House Democrats Propose Community College Scholarships

May 25, 2018

The House Democratic caucus announced their proposal to provide debt-free community college to Michigan residents. Named the “HirED Opportunity Act,” the plan would provide full-tuition scholarships to qualified individuals.

Beginning in the 2019-2020 academic year, recent high school graduates who enroll full-time in a community college program would be eligible to receive a Community College Opportunity Scholarship for debt-free tuition. In order to maintain eligibility, students would participate in a mentorship program, give back to their community through a community service compact, and maintain a 2.0 GPA and continuous enrollment for up to 2 years.

Adults seeking to return to school to earn a new credential, receive skills training or fulfill a degree program would be eligible for debt-free tuition through a new career program focused on high-demand and/or emerging industries.
