Michigan Competitive Scholarship Fact Sheet Academic Year 2013-14 Description The Michigan Competitive Scholarship program is available to undergraduate students pursuing their first degree at an approved Michigan postsecondary institution. Students must demonstrate both financial need and merit and eligible applicants must achieve a qualifying ACT score prior to entering college. Application Applicants must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students whose FAFSA is received by March 1 will receive priority consideration. Students are encouraged to file their FAFSA on the Web at www.fafsa.gov. Paper forms are available from the Federal Student Aid Information Center by calling 1-800-4FED-AID or a printable version can be accessed on the www.federalstudentaid.ed.gov Web site. The FAFSA allows students to list multiple colleges when filing. Because Student Scholarships and Grants (SSG) does not know which college the student will select, the award is based on the first college listed. Students must file a renewal FAFSA every year to determine possible continued program eligibility. The student is responsible for notifying SSG of a change of address or college choice. Program Limits Awards are restricted to tuition and mandatory fees. Awards may pay a maximum of $630 per academic year at a Michigan public college or university or $1,524 per academic year at a Michigan independent college or university1. Program eligibility ends when a student has received a baccalaureate degree, after completing the equivalent of ten (10) semesters or 15 terms, or when a student has been out of high school over ten years, whichever occurs first. Future awards are subject to available and approved funding.

Delaware Higher Education Ofﬁce As part of the Delaware Department of Education, the Delaware Higher Education Ofﬁce (DHEO) works to ensure that postsecondary education is accessible and affordable for Delaware residents by providing information and ﬁnancial assistance to students and their families. We administer 23 state-sponsored ﬁnancial aid programs, which include grants, scholarships, regional contracts, and professional incentive programs. Last year, 2,114 Delaware residents were awarded $4,252,800 through these programs. As a member of the Southern Regional Education board, Delaware is able to provide additional tuition savings for its residents through the Academic Common Market (ACM), a tuition-savings agreement among 15 southern states. ACM students attending college last year saved an average of $12,800 in tuition costs, totaling more than $1,340,000 in savings for the year. Since joining SREB in 1998, Delaware families have saved over $11,600,000 through the ACM program. To increase educational opportunities for Delawareans, DHEO works with state ofﬁcials to develop new ﬁnancial assistance programs. Twenty programs have been introduced since 1997: • Academic Common Market • Critical Need Scholarship • Delaware College Investment Plan • Delaware Institute for Dental Education & Research (DIDER) / Temple University Partnership • Delaware SEED Scholarship Program • Delaware State Loan Repayment Plan for Health Professionals • Delaware Teacher Corps • Democracy Project D.C.

F O L L O W I N G THE DEATH of Osama Bin Laden, many American young people across the country gathered on street comers and in front of the White House, some celebrating with chants of "U-S-A" and others singing the national anthem. Press coverage of the youthñil celebrators, many of them part of Generation Y or the Millennial Generation, renamed these young people the "9/11 Generation."' Newspaper accounts following Bin Laden's demise discuss him as "the common evil" that the Millennial Generation faced in much the same way as their grandparents had faced Hitler.2 One student remarks that Bin Laden's death is "the defining moment" of his generation.^ Nine-eleven, it appears, is a memorable moment for this generation. Over nine years earlier, on September 11, 2001,1 was also concemed about how young people would come to understand what came to be called "9/11." After spending the moming of September 11, 2001 watching television as the Twin Towers in New York collapsed, I arrived on campus to teach my lower-division history class, and was immediately informed that classes were cancelled for the day because of the "evil attacks." Since I regularly tell my students that "evil" is not a useful analytic term for the writing and understanding of history, I devised a questionnaire for my History 101 students to assess their understanding of the event."

If you have a 401(k) plan at work and need some cash, you might be tempted to borrow or withdraw money from it. But keep in mind that the purpose of a 401(k) is to save for retirement. Take money out of it now, and you'll risk running out of money during retirement. You may also face stiff tax consequences and penalties for withdrawing money before age 59½. Still, if you're facing a financial emergency--for instance, your child's college tuition is almost due and your 401(k) is your only source of available funds--borrowing or withdrawing money from your 401(k) may be your only option.
