The Kalamazoo Promise Scholars Program provides direct support to students who are eligible for the Kalamazoo Promise scholarship and are attending, or planning to attend, Western Michigan University. We do this by offering guidance on navigating the academic and personal challenges of college life, connecting students with campus and community resources and providing knowledge, awareness and skills for students to succeed in college, careers, and the community. We also work to provide additional opportunities to students including studying abroad, attending conferences and other programming designed you enhance your resume. The Our Space student lounge is an area that was designed with Promise students in mind. It is a place to rest, study or socialize between classes.
