2017 Ewen-Trout Creek Margaret Dittman Memorial Education Grant

The Margaret Dittman Memorial Education Grant was established by her husband, Mr. Gene Dittman, to assist past and present graduates of Ewen-Trout Creek High School of good character and in financial need to continue their education. Mr. Dittman recognizes the rising cost of higher education has made it more difficult for individuals of modest means to advance and complete their education.

Galatians 6:10 Scholarship accepting letters of recommendation

Michigan Tech is accepting letters of recommendation for the Galatians 6:10 Scholarship

The winner of this scholarship will receive four years of tuition at the Michigan resident tuition level. The criteria are simply that the incoming freshman be pursuing a degree in Engineering or the Sciences, that they submit a letter of interest to tell the donor more about themselves and their faith, and that they obtain a letter of support from a member of the Clergy who is willing to speak on their behalf. As a public school this is data that we don’t collect, so this extra step is always needed.

The deadline is March 30, 2017.

After the student applies and is accepted to MTU, they simply send these two letters to the Student Financial Services Center at  Michigan Tech, 1400 Townsend Drive, Houghton, Michigan, 49931.

You may contact Ben Larson at balarson@mtu.edu, cell 906-370-8797 for more details.
