LANSING, MI – In effort to increase awareness of available financial aid resources, the Michigan Department of Treasury’s MI Student Aid program has released a music video to promote paying for college to students and families in Michigan.
Featuring students and staff from Lansing Waverly High School and MI Student Aid Outreach representative Charles “JustRozier” Rozier, the music video informs and educates college-bound students about where to begin searching for scholarships and grants. Rozier wrote and performed the “MI Student Aid” song featured in the video.
“Paying for college can be challenging and many college-bound students don’t know where to begin,” said Anne Wohlfert, director of Treasury’s Student Financial Services Bureau. “This music video lets students and their families know that MI Student Aid is Michigan’s go-to resource for finding the financial resources needed to pay for college.”
Television and radio stations are encouraged to play and promote the following MI Student Aid music videos as a public service:
- “MI Student Aid” – Short Version (30 seconds)
- “MI Student Aid” – Long Version (2 minutes and 30 seconds)
On March 10, the music video debuted at Lansing Waverly High School for all of the senior class to view. Following the video premiere, the MI Student Aid Outreach team members were on-site to answer any questions students had regarding navigating the college financial aid process.
MI Student Aid encourages students to pursue postsecondary education by providing equality of access to student financial resources and information. Through the administration of various student financial assistance programs, students receive the guidance and funding necessary to pursue their educational goals.
