The University of Michigan has long done an outstanding job of providing financial aid to students from the Shiawassee region, and the Cook Family Foundation has extended its resources to help. UM is committed to cover 100 percent of demonstrated financial need of in-state students through use of public grants, private scholarships, and the University’s own significant endowment. The Cook Family Foundation helps by providing a scholarship to every student from 10 local high schools in the greater Shiawassee County area.
This year, the University has expanded its financial aid commitment with the Go Blue Guarantee which promises four years of free tuition to students from families earning less than $65,000. Go to www.goblueguarantee.umich.edu for full details and qualifying information. For students from families with more moderate incomes, the University provides grants, scholarships, and loans. The Cook Family Foundation provides its scholarships without consideration of family income. For many local students, UM is often the most affordable option for top quality higher education.
The Cook Family Foundation coordinates with the University of Michigan to ensure that students from the greater Shiawassee County region are able to attend this premier public university. We work with students, parents, and counselors to help them with the admission process and financial aid. Here is what some of these students say about us: click here to read testimonials
