SUPPORT EMU STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS BY BUYING AN "E" LICENSE PLATE: This valuable program allows the Alumni Association to help children of EMU alumni attend Eastern, achieve their dreams and continue the EMU legacy. As you renew your license plate, please consider supporting deserving students by purchasing an “E” plate. The plates cost $35 above the annual vehicle registration fee for a regular plate, with $25 of that fee going directly to the program. If you already have an “E” plate… don’t forget to specify on your renewal form that you want to keep it. The renewal fee is only $10 above the regular registration fee, with that $10 going directly to the program. It’s a great way to show your pride in Eastern and promote EMU in the community. To order your “E” plate, visit http://www.michigan.gov/sos/0,1607,7-127-1585_1595_9026-20400--,00.html.
