The Holland/Zeeland Promise began as a dream. A dream to replicate the Kalamazoo Promise in the Holland/Zeeland area – allowing all our young people to graduate college or technical schools without crushing student debt. However, recognizing that they did not have the kind of donor endowment which the Kalamazoo Promise has, a group of business and community leaders came together to create the Holland/Zeeland Promise, which covers (after other grants and scholarships) all the student’s expenses for tuition, room and board and books until they graduate. The above information is taken from the Program’s website.
