Medallion Scholarship Competition

The Lee Honors College co-sponsors the Medallion Scholarship Competition, Western Michigan University’s most prestigious merit-based scholarship for undergraduates, with the Office of Admissions. An average of 20 scholarships currently valued at $50,000 ($12,500 per year) are given each spring. Awarded to incoming high school graduates through a competitive process that occurs in January and February, students who have completed an admissions application by Dec. 5, 2014 and meet the competition criteria are automatically invited to participate.
