THE LIGGETT MERIT SCHOLARSHIP
Recognizing the Best and Brightest
All applicants for Liggett’s ninth grade are automatically eligible for the distinguished Liggett Merit Scholarship. Since 2008, the Liggett Merit Scholarship program has provided more than 40 students with the educational opportunity of a lifetime. At Liggett, they will learn the skills necessary to become leaders and responsible citizens and they will graduate with the confidence and conviction to make a difference in today’s complex world.
Our alumni recognize the importance of Liggett's mission and many choose to give back
to the school in the form of merit scholarships for our students. Their generosity assists Liggett in its commitment to remaining accessible to all students and our mission to attract the best and brightest in the Detroit Metro area.
