Extracurricular Opportunity

Student Grant Program

Michigan high school students who participate in academic extracurricular activities (like robotics, debate, deca, hosa, and more) can apply for a grant to reduce the cost of participating. Grants are accepted on a rolling basis (meaning you can apply any time throughout the year).

Grant money can be used for...

  • Conference and Registration Fees
  • Transportation Costs
  • Hotel Accommodations
  • Other Normal Expenses

Application Process

Step 1

Read the rules and eligibility to understand if you qualify for a grant. You likely qualify for a grant if…

  1. You are a high school student in Michigan,
  2. You are 18-years-old or younger, and
  3. You participate in an academic extracurricular activity.
Step 2

Gather information about yourself, your school, and the event you will be attending.

Step 3

Apply! The application should take approximately 15-30 minutes to fill out.

Step 4

You will receive your determination within 2 weeks (we will coordinate with your school to disburse the grant).

Step 5

After your extracurricular activity, let us know how it went!
