The Muskegon Area Promise makes a unique commitment to the young people of our community – if they work hard they will be able to earn at least a two-year college degree tuition free. The Promise Scholarship is an award promised to resident graduates of high schools within the Muskegon Area Intermediate School District boundaries. It provides the financial assistance necessary to obtain a two-year degree or its equivalent at an eligible partnering institution when used in conjunction with federal, state and institutional grants. The Promise Scholarship will promote post-secondary education and prepare students for future success in college and career choices.
Eligible students will receive funding for tuition, books and mandatory fees up to the cost of obtaining an associate’s degree or its equivalent at the prevailing Muskegon Community College tuition rate. Promise scholarships will fund educational opportunity at the partnering institutions of Muskegon Community College or Baker College of Muskegon.
Promise Scholarships are funded through a combination of broad-based community support, major gifts from private donors, corporate and foundation investments and through federal or state financial aid available to Muskegon students.
