Albion College Refer-a-Student Program Offers $1,000 Scholarships



There are many high school students who would be a great fit, but need some encouragement to apply to Albion College. Our recently-launched referral program allows alumni and parents to refer students directly to the Office of Admission. This ensures that students will receive Albion admission materials and personalized contact from their admission counselor, hopefully leading to more applicants.

Not only are referrals a great way to help the college, they also make Albion more affordable for students. If your referred student is admitted and chooses Albion, the student will receive a $1,000 scholarship in your name—$4,000 over four years—with no financial commitment necessary from you.

You must fill out your referral forms for high school seniors before they submit an application to Albion, so hurry before it's too late! Seniors are starting to apply now!

The conclusions were drawn over a number of years starting in the early 1990s and led to a 2002 paper, “Multiple Paternity in the Nurse Shark,” in the journal Environmental Biology of Fishes.
