The Cook Family Foundation is proud to announce the new University Of Michigan Shiawassee Advantage. Now any high school senior with a grade point of 3.5 or higher from any of the ten area high schools serving all or part of Shiawassee County will now receive a $3,000 Cook Family Foundation Scholarship if they enroll at any U Of M campus. In addition, these students will become eligible for the many U Of M merit-based scholarships as well as the full-tuition Go Blue Guarantee if they have demonstrated financial need.
A reception honoring students from this area who are planning on attending the University Of Michigan-Flint this fall was held at the Owosso Country Club on Tuesday, August 16. It was sponsored jointly by the Cook Family Foundation and the University Of Michigan-Flint. Several representatives of the UM-Flint team that support the students of the greater Shiawassee area were in attendance (pictured above), with Chris Giordano as the featured speaker.
“I was deeply honored to be a part of the Cook Family Foundation student reception for scholarship recipients. For over four decades, Bruce Cook and the Cook Family Foundation have been awarding scholarships to assist area students to attend the University of Michigan. And the newly-announced University of Michigan Shiawassee Advantage will support even more area students to attend UM-Flint. Their dedication and commitment to the support of our young adults and the value of higher education serves the future of our region, state and nation. I look forward to a growing partnership between the Cook Family Foundation and UM-Flint!”
