Our young people have been admitted to more than 130 different colleges and universities across the United States.

The Wall of Fame at Marygrove College displays the colleges students have been accepted to.

Partnership Opportunities

We are seeking partnerships with colleges and universities to help remove barriers for our young people to consider a variety of schools. This can include scholarships, in-state tuition and other discounts. College partners have opportunities to meet our students at college fairs and during life-skills training.

The Midnight Golf Program maintains college partnerships and relationships with colleges and universities around the country. This year, MGP created new or enhanced relationships with six universities, including creating exclusive MGP scholarships.

This fall, eight of our partner institutions will participate in virtual programming to speak directly with the Class of 2022.

These relationships are based, in part, on the high-quality students and support MGP provides students during their college careers.

For more information about partnering with the Midnight Golf Program, contact Winston Coffee, College Success Coach and College Liaison.

College Success Program

MGP believes it’s not enough to get our students to college. The College Success Program, which was implemented in 2018, ensures that MGP students have the resources and guidance they need to earn degrees. We have three dedicated, full-time College Success Coaches who track our students through postsecondary education. The coaches make a great impact by completing a minimum of two one-on-one meetings with 100%of our students and hosting Success Saturday events and college fairs.

Program Results:

  • MGP students have a 70% college graduation rate, which is 4-times higher than Detroit students
  • 2021 college persistence rates:
    • Class of 2020: 91% persistence to second year
    • Class of 2019: 98% persistence to third year
    • Class of 2018: 96% persistence to fourth year
  • X% of  students attend HBCUs
  • $5M in financial aid was leveraged as a result of MGP’s guidance in 2021, including 129 MGP-exclusive scholarships, amounting to a total of $150,800
