Funding from the U.S. Department of Education enabled The Evaluation Center to form a three-way partnership to study the impact of the Kalamazoo Promise. The partnership among WMU, Kalamazoo Public Schools, and the W.E. Upjohn Institute sought to asses the short-term and intermediate outcomes of the Kalamazoo Promise. The promise is a scholarship program announced in November 2005 that provides up to four years of tuition and fees at any two-year or four-year public college or university in Michigan for students who graduate from Kalamazoo Public Schools.
