PSA Student Scholarships

Implemented in the fall of 2004 the Public School Academy (PSA) Scholarship was created by the School/University Partnership Office (SUPO) at Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU) to make college accessible and affordable for all students who graduate from their 18 authorized PSAs. The PSA Scholarship offers seniors who graduate from an SVSU Authorized PSA that are admissible to SVSU, a scholarship that ranges from $6,000 per year.

In efforts to increase University graduation and retention rates, SUPO developed the Public School Academy Transition Program. Founded in the fall of 2011, the PSA Transition Program works in partnership with SVSU's enrollment management and student service offices to:

  1. recruit students from SVSU's Public School Academies,
  2. provide financial support through the PSA Scholarship, and
  3. provide the academic supports needed to retain and graduate students. 

Students who receive a PSA scholarship enter the Transition Program and are placed into an intense college readiness program that provides supports in and outside of the classroom. Some of the supports include one-on-one tutoring through the Center for Academic Achievement, volunteer experiences, leadership experience, employment, and academic advising.
