College producing contest for free tuition
A college is accepting entries to award one student free tuition for four years to pursue a bachelor’s degree in any field.
Baker College, in partnership with iHeartMedia, is producing the Be More in Four contest, which will award 120 credit hours toward any of more than 40 four-year degrees the Flint-based institution offers at its 12 locations or online — including Muskegon.
Interested students over 16 must submit a short essay of 200-500 words on why they are “striving to ‘be more’ and how a bachelor’s degree from Baker College can assist them in pursuing a brighter future.”
Submissions are due by Aug. 5 on the contest’s web page.
The winner will be selected on Aug. 17 and be eligible to enroll at Baker College at the campus of their choice.
The winner will be selected by a panel of judges that includes Baker College and iHeart Media representatives.
“At Baker, we know that getting a college education can be life changing,” said Bart Daig, president, Baker College.
Founded in 1911, Baker College has 12 campus and extension sites in Michigan, as well as 100-percent online program options across 100 undergraduate and graduate degrees.
Baker College has more than 3,300 faculty and staff, 17,000 students and hundreds of thousands of alumni.
