The Michaels Employees Scholarship Program is now officially open for the 2022 academic year and is available to children of eligible Michaels employees. The program offers financial scholarships to distinguished students who are pursuing post-secondary education by attending college or a trade/professional school. Dependents of eligible employees who are 26 or younger with a high school diploma or GED are all invited to apply.

For their children or dependents to be eligible for this program, Michaels teammates must be employed full-time, with a household income below $200,000.

This year, the application window opens March 3rd and all full-time employees should receive a letter in the mail announcing the start of the application process that includes a link to the online application. Official grade transcript showing students’ grades through the fall 2021 semester and a copy of the summary page of their 2021 federal tax return must be included in the application.

Mike Levitt, our founder and chairman, always says that education is the most effective investment we can make. One of the few programs of its kind in the nation, the Michaels Employees Scholarship Program is fully funded by Mike and his wife Pat. The Levitts created the program in 2008 and have awarded hundreds of Michaels employees’ children since then.

This year’s applications are due May 20th.

Best of luck to all students who apply!
