THE MICHAELS ORGANIZATION EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION
At Michaels, we share the vision that our residential communities can be a beautiful place to call home, as well as a launching pad for people to move to the next level of their lives. We believe in doing well by doing the extraordinary and that means investing in people.
Mike Levitt, our founder and chairman -- and the Mike in Michaels--always says that education is the most effective investment we can make, so he founded The Michaels Organization Educational Foundation in 1991. Every year since, the foundation has bestowed college scholarships to residents of our rental communities.
Scholarship recipients receive grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000, which can be used toward educational expenses at any accredited college, university, or vocational training school in the nation. Scholarships are awarded annually, and students may reapply each year of their undergraduate education for continuing grants.

The Michaels Organization Educational Foundation has awarded more than $1.2 million in college scholarships for the 2020/2021 academic year. The total dollar amount of scholarships awarded -- $1,259,000 -- represents a record high for the Foundation.
Among the 273 Michaels Scholars who were awarded grants ranging from $2,000 to $10,000 each are students involved with a wide range of majors and who will be attending various community colleges and universities across the country, as well as some who will participate in vocational training programs. Four senior residents interested in pursuing continuing education classes were also awarded grants of $500 each.
The Student Living Scholarship Program will follow, this October.
