Scholarship Description

The William D. and Jewell Brewer Scholarships are only available to Michigan residents who are high school seniors or college students (with no bachelor’s degree) and are a son, daughter, grandchild or great-grandchild of an honorably discharged veteran or active duty service member. Applicants must provide a copy of the discharge papers (DD-214 or equivalent) showing entry and discharge dates from honorable active military service. For descendants of active duty military service members, a copy of the service members current military identification card is required. Applicants should be planning to or are attending any nationally accredited college, university, or trade school. Selection is based on a student’s G.P.A. of 2.5 or higher, and must provide a copy of their most recent transcript of grades signed by a school official. Applicants must have a financial need for the scholarship, thus required to provide a copy of the parent’s most recently filed Federal Tax Form 1040 (both sides of the form are needed showing adjusted gross income and signature). If the applicant filed a Federal Tax Form 1040 and is 100% independent from parent’s income, the applicant needs to provide a copy of their own Federal Tax Form 1040. Scholarships are $500 each and non-renewable.
