We anticipate that many student award offers will require revisions. As an example,
we know that Pell Grant amounts are going to increase for 2023-24, but the federal
government has not yet provided us with the new Pell Grant amounts. When we adjust
Pell Grants, we will also revise Michigan Achievement awards as necessary.
