The Cook Family Foundation supports the best and brightest high school graduates from Shiawassee County who wish to attend the University of Michigan. All Shiawassee students who are admitted to University of Michigan are offered scholarship support, in addition to participating in a U of M Scholars Awards Dinner in the spring.
Cook Family Foundation Scholarships
All graduating high school seniors from Shiawassee County who have been accepted to the University of Michigan are invited to apply for a Cook Family Foundation Scholarship.
If you attend a Shiawassee County-based high school and have been admitted to the University of Michigan but have NOT been invited to apply for a scholarship, please contact us.
Bruce and Jacqueline Cook Scholarship
Each year, Bruce and Jacqueline Cook provide separate funding for a four-year, full-tuition scholarship to the University of Michigan. The scholarship award is based on three primary criteria:
- Academic success in high school
- Promise for future success
Students must be nominated for this scholarship program, based on GPA and ACT score; nominated students will be contacted by the Foundation. Applications are screened according to award criteria, and the top five finalists are invited for personal interviews.
- Applications are due: November 1
- Award notification: January 20
University of Michigan Visits
All nominees for the Bruce and Jacqueline Cook Scholarship are invited to an overnight visit to the University of Michigan in early fall. These students participate in small-group tours, visits with upper-classmen from Shiawassee County and meet with representatives of Financial Aid and other student support programs. Other potential U of M applicants are invited to attend day trips, which are coordinated in partnership with high school counseling staff. For more information on U of M day trips, contact your high school counselor or email .
