WMU is a proud partner of the Kalamazoo Promise, a private scholarship foundation that offers scholarships to students who attended Kalamazoo Public Schools. The Kalamazoo Promise Scholarship is a “First Dollar offer”, which means it is meant to pay before any other offers are applied to the students account. This allows students to receive the maximum amount of funds possible. Eligibility for the offer is determined by the Kalamazoo Promise program office and WMU offers students off a roster received from the program.
