      2021-2022
      101st Michigan Legislature
      Meet the House Newcomers


      Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, along with leaders in education, business, labor and workforce development, today launched the nation’s first program offering tuition-free college to an estimated 625,000 Michiganders who provided essential, frontline services during COVID-19 Stay Home, Stay Safe orders between April – June 2020.

      Futures for Frontliners, inspired by the GI Bill which provided college degree to those serving their country in WWII, offers Michigan adults without college degrees or high school diplomas who provided essential services during the pandemic a tuition-free pathway to gaining the skills needed to obtain high-demand, high-wage careers. The funding is not only available to those in the medical field, but also essential workers in manufacturing, nursing homes, grocery stores, sanitation, delivery, retail and more.

      “This initiative is Michigan’s way of expressing gratitude to essential workers for protecting public health and keeping our state running,” Whitmer said. “Whether it was stocking shelves, delivering supplies, picking up trash, manufacturing PPE or providing medical care, you were there for us. Now this is your chance to pursue the degree or training you’ve been dreaming about to help you and your own family succeed.”

      To be eligible for the program, applicants must:

      • Be a Michigan resident
      • Have worked in an essential industry at least part-time for 11 of the 13 weeks between April 1 – June 30, 2020
      • Have been required by their job to work outside the home at least some of the time between April 1 – June 30, 2020
      • Not have previously earned an associate or bachelor’s degree
      • Not be in default on a Federal student loan
      • Complete a Futures for Frontliners scholarship application by 11:59 p.m., Dec. 31, 2020

      Frontline workers are encouraged to visit www.michigan.gov/Frontliners to explore career opportunities, a list of local community colleges and get started on their application – even if they don’t already have a high school diploma.
