Upper Peninsula students can earn non-competitive, merit-based scholarships, which are based on high school academic achievement and are awarded at the time a student is admitted to Albion College. To learn more about these scholarships, please visit Albion's scholarship calculator.
Additionally, in accordance with the wishes of James A. and Verle A. Klungness, ’50, and William H. and Clifford G. Anderson, ’37, Albion offers a number of full-tuition scholarships to incoming students from the Upper Peninsula. As U.P. residents themselves, the Klungness and Anderson families maintained a strong connection to Albion and wish for others to have similar, life-changing experiences. These scholarships are competitive, and require additional credentials, along with the general application for admission.
By email, notify the Office of Admission of intent to compete for the Klungness and Anderson Scholarships. Please email Corey Grazul at .
Submit a general application for admission and Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). U.P. Scholarship candidates must be admitted to Albion and have a FAFSA on file.
Once you notify us of your candidacy and have been admitted, we'll send you a list of questions to respond to through video. Some questions will be serious and some senseless; all to get to know you better! Most who choose Albion do so because it feels right. We want our interview questions to reflect the spirit of our school. Record yourself and submit when you're ready.
In approximately 500 words, describe how living in the Upper Peninsula has impacted your life. Personal stories, family legacies, cultural ties; we want to know how the U.P. has shaped your identity.
Consider asking a teacher, coach, pastor, employer, or other community leader who knows you well. We would like to hear about your character, resolve, motivations, idiosyncrasies, and/or abilities in and out of the classroom.
A visit to campus is required for scholarship candidacy. We want your decision to attend Albion to be more than simply a financial one. A visit during your junior year, or fall of senior year, will count.
The video interview recording, essay, and letter of recommendation can be emailed to Corey Grazul at . Students who are selected to receive a U.P. Scholarship can expect notification by February 1 of their senior year. If offered a U.P. Scholarship, students must accept and submit their enrollment deposit by March 1 of their senior year.
