MCAN’s MI ECHO Scholarship Program is looking for a dedicated and passionate individual to help manage and sustain the scholarship program. The Michigan Equity, Courage, Hope and Opportunity Scholarship (MI ECHO) is a tuition-free pathway for students who worked in an essential industry during the COVID-19 pandemic and who are not eligible for federal financial aid to pursue an associate degree or certificate. It is designed to serve DACA recipients, Temporary Protected Status immigrants, Special Immigrant Juveniles, and other populations who are excluded from most traditional financial aid opportunities. This will be a hybrid position with some remote work and some in-person work at our Lansing office.
