Scholarship for High School Seniors in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula

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.

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 completion of the steps below, along with submitting the general application for admission.

Please contact the Office of Admission (517-629-0321 or admission@albion.edu), with questions regarding this scholarship opportunity.

Essay Toggle Accordion

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.

Letter of Recommendation Toggle Accordion

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.

Campus Visit Toggle Accordion

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.

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.
