Your Gift to The Northport Promise Can Make a Real Difference
If you went to college 30 or 40 years ago... or more... things have changed dramatically. College tuition costs have skyrocketed. A 2015-2016 survey of tuition and fee costs at public universities in Michigan ranged from a low of $7,175 to $14,286 for 24 credit hours. Add to that the cost of books and living expenses and it's not surprising that the average 2016 college graduate has over $37,000 in student loan debt.
We can't erase that debt for Northport graduates but we can help. Each Northport graduate has the opportunity for a scholarship of up to $2,000 a year for four years, but this is only possible through the generosity of many people. You can help.
