P-250 Scholarship 2015
This scholarship is awarded on the basis of student contributions in the areas of leadership and service to the campus & the greater Albion community.
These awards are made possible by Project 250, a student program that raised more than $250,000 in endowed funds during the 1971 academic year in honor of former Albion College President Bernard T. Lomas. The $2,000 annual awards are being offered to Albion College students who will be sophomores, juniors or seniors during the next academic year.
The purpose of the Project 250 Award is to encourage students to contribute to significant improvements of self, campus, and community, both in and out of the classroom. Award recipients will be determined:
- Based on the applicant’s broad range of activities and without regard to financial need.
- On the basis of the applicant’s leadership contributions as measured by the quality of the applicant’s involvement with activities and organizations; and

Who may apply?
Any current student (first year, sophomore, or junior) who has been actively involved in the areas of leadership and service on or off campus may apply for the Project 250 Award.

The application, grade and social status release, and all recommendations will be turned in at the Campus Programs & Organizations Office.

Enroll in a SOAR Session
We are so excited you have decided to become a Briton and we can't wait to help you get started on this new journey. Our SOAR program will introduce you to life at Albion College, while ensuring that this is a seamless and enjoyable transition for you.
Please read the following guidelines carefully before registering for SOAR.
All New Students Must Attend SOAR
Each new student is required to attend one of the SOAR sessions in order to enroll for the fall semester. A parallel program is offered for parents/families but parent and family participation is optional.
Student SOAR Registration Cost
There is no cost for each entering student participant. The student's lunch and other program expenses are covered by Albion College.
Parent/Family Registration & Cost
The participant fee for Parent/Family members is $10.00 per person and includes lunch and all program materials. Children under 12 may participate for $5.00. While we do ask that you register in advance, we do not accept pre-payment and ask that you pay your balance the day you arrive at your assigned SOAR program. Methods of payment acceptable on that day include cash, check, and credit card.
Special Note: Currently the online registration system will only register parents/family members residing at a single address (that address does not have to be the same as the student's address). If your family situation is such that parents/family members who will be attending SOAR reside at more than one address, please register one parent/or set of parents in the online enrollment form. When your online registration is complete, please contact the SOAR Program Office at 517/629-0433 or via email at
to register those parents/family members who were not included with the online registration.
Special Physical and/or Dietary Needs
If the student or any member of the student's family who will be attending has special dietary or physical needs, please contact the SOAR Program Office at 517/629-0433, or via e-mail at
. Lunch will have a vegetarian option.
Select a Session
All SOAR session requests will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. New students will be asked to provide their first, second, and third choices for SOAR. Sessions will close as they reach capacity. Please do not assume that you will be placed in your first choice session (see registration confirmation below). However, the SOAR Program will do our best to match you to your highest preference, taking into account space availability.
You will receive onscreen confirmation that your information has been submitted to the SOAR Program Office when you complete your online SOAR enrollment form. Once processed, an electronic confirmation detailing the actual session to which you have been assigned will be sent by email to both the SOAR student and the primary family member. That email will be followed by a hard copy confirmation which will be sent to you via U.S. mail. Most SOAR enrollment are processed within two days after being submitted. Please allow time for processing and delivery of your written confirmation by U.S. mail.
If you feel that you have not received a confirmation by mail in a timely manner, please contact the SOAR Program Office at 517/629-0433, or via e-mail at
