Kalamazoo Valley Community College

Want to take a class for your own learning and not necessarily to obtain a degree? If you complete a course at Kalamazoo Valley Community College (KVCC) you can apply for a Bronson KVCC Scholarship. Find more details on the Documents tab.

Michigan Education Trust

The Michigan Education Trust (MET), Michigan’s 529 prepaid tuition program, makes saving a little bit easier. It allows parents, grandparents, and others to avoid rising tuition rates and save on college tuition by buying college credits at today’s price. MET switched to a discounted, age-based pricing structure with greater options for those who start saving early.
