My Town Kalamazoo: Promise scholarship expands to liberal arts colleges

KALAMAZOO, Mich.—Students who receive the Kalamazoo Promise scholarship have even more college options available to them, beginning in the fall of 2015.

The Kalamazoo Promise is teaming up with the Michigan Colleges Alliance to allow scholars to attend any MCA liberal arts college or university in Michigan.  Eligible schools include Adrian College, Albion College, Alma College, Andrews University, Aquinas College, Calvin College, Hillsdale College, University of Detroit Mercy, Hope College, Kalamazoo College, Madonna University, Marygrove College, Olivet College, Siena Heights University and Spring Arbor University.  The Kalamazoo Promise board member Janice M. Brown says the partnership brings the number of eligible schools up to 58.  In each case, tuition and fees will be fully and jointly funded by The Kalamazoo Promise and MCA member institution.

“This partnership truly is a winning proposition for all. Promise Scholars will benefit from increased college choice throughout the state, and MCA colleges and universities will be enriched by having these deserving students on their campuses. We are grateful to The Kalamazoo Promise for creating this opportunity,” adds Bob Bartlett, CEO of the Michigan Colleges Alliance.
