The Michaels Organization Educational Foundation announced today that its scholarship application process for its Student Living Scholarship program for the 2023-2024 academic year is now open. The program is specifically designed for students who reside in on- or off-campus student living communities that are owned or managed by The Michaels Organization. Undergraduate, graduate, and doctorate students are eligible to apply.
The Michaels Student Living Scholarship Program, now in its eighth year, is offered through The Michaels Organization Educational Foundation, a non-profit affiliate of The Michaels Organization, established to administer scholarships to Michaels residents. Since its inception in 1991, the Foundation has awarded $14 million in scholarships to scholars residing at Michaels-owned and managed communities. Earlier this year, $1.8 million was awarded to residents living in Michaels’ affordable and military communities.
“We are incredibly proud to support our residents in their journeys to educational success,” said John O’Donnell, CEO of The Michaels Organization. “At Michaels, we are firm believers that providing access to education and ideal living-learning environments go hand in hand when it comes to our mission of Lifting Lives.”
All Educational Foundation funds are raised through voluntary contributions by companies and private individuals throughout The Michaels Organization’s business network. All donations are then matched $2 for every $1 by The Michaels Organization’s founder and chairman, Michael Levitt and his wife, Pat Levitt.
Applications for the Michaels Student Living Scholarship Program are available now on Michaels’ website. The application process will remain open until Monday, October 16, 2023. All applicants will be notified of the outcome status of their application by November 24, 2023.
