Information on Muskegon Promise Scholarship

To maximize scholarship support for all students in Muskegon County, the Community Foundation for Muskegon County will focus scholarship dollars on students who are not eligible for the Muskegon Promise – either due to the school they plan to attend or due to grade point average.

Muskegon Promise eligibility requirements for 2017 graduates:

 Graduate of any high school (public, private, charter) in Muskegon County

 Grade point average of 3.5 or above

 Attending Baker College or Muskegon Community College

For additional information about the Promise, visit

Graduates of Promise schools are welcome to apply for a Foundation scholarship, but if the Scholarship Committees see a grade point average solidly above a 3.5 with plans to attend Baker College or Muskegon Community College, applicants will not be considered for a Foundation scholarship. If applicants are determined to be Promise-eligible after they are awarded a Foundation scholarship, the Scholarship Committees will award that scholarship to another student.


If you are a Promise recipient, once you have completed two years at Baker College or Muskegon Community College, you are encouraged to apply for a Community Foundation scholarship to support your remaining higher education.

If you have any questions, contact Dana Scott, Scholarship Coordinator,, 231-332-4104.
