Houghton County teen awarded $2,000 MSU Pre-College Achievement Scholarship

Micaela Geborkoff, a Houghton area student, has been awarded a $2,000 Michigan State University Pre-College Achievement Scholarship. Students in 8th to 10th grades for 2019-20 who attended an MSU summer pre-college program last year were eligible to apply for this award last fall. Micaela Geborkoff participated in 4-H Exploration Days, one of six pre-college programs offered by MSU Extension 4-H Youth Development.

MSU pre-college programs are great for helping youth explore possible career interests. They are great fun, very educational, and help connect young people with university faculty and other resources. MSU pre-college programs also help youth envision their future so they can wisely choose their high school classes and prepare for college.

Selection for this scholarship is based on academic ability and potential, demonstration of extra-curricular and community service experience, demonstration of leadership and teamwork skills, ability to overcome obstacles, teacher and program director nominations and strength of student essay. The scholarship is applied toward the student’s first year at MSU as a degree-seeking student.
