To qualify for The Flint Promise, students must graduate from one of 11 high schools or earn a GED in the City of Flint, and reside there at graduation. Applicants complete the FAFSA for need-based aid, and The Promise covers remaining tuition and fees after federal aid. Funding comes from Pell grants, private contributions, and Flint Promise Zone Authority revenue. Partnering with Mott Community College, Kettering University, and the University of Michigan-Flint, The Promise offers degree pursuit support. Success coaches assist with academic pathways, life challenges, and cover book expenses. The unique wrap-around services pave the way for students towards a promising future.
The Flint Promise Fund was established in 2018 through generous support from Consumers Energy, Tom Gores, and other individuals. To build the endowment to $4 million, your gifts make all the difference. Help us light a pathway so that every high school graduate in Flint has access to a college education without incurring long-term debt.
