Resources and Links

Not everyone will qualify for the Alsame Scholarships and we want to offer other resources in and around  Michigan. Remember that paying for higher education includes more than classes. You must consider the costs of housing, food, transportation, certifications and books.

You may notice a lot of opportunities that do not require social security numbers. The following links offer resources to all students. We receive a lot of questions from teachers who want other resources to meet the needs of their Latino/a students. We do not guarantee that you will receive funding from the organizations below, we merely make you aware that they exist.
