Scholarship Program at The Michaels Organization

Scholarship Program

Our scholarship program is just one of the many ways we are able to "lift lives". We want to thank our 2017 sponsors who share this commitment and so generously support our efforts. We are looking forward to expanding and growing this scholarship program.
