A state House committee is beginning to look into the state system that tracks students who earned college scholarship money in middle school.
Governor Granholm earlier this week raised questions about state's ability to know which high school seniors qualified for additional scholarship money.
Students who pass the Michigan Educational Assessment Program tests in both the middle school and high school are eligible for a $500 Merit Award scholarship. It would be on top of a $2500 award for high test scores in high school.
Granholm proposed cutting the smaller scholarships to save money.
House Speaker Craig DeRoche of Novi says his office has received several calls from constituents upset about the possibility of losing scholarship money their children earned.
