Applications for the Detroit Promise Scholarship, a program that provides funding for Detroit high school students to attend a Michigan college or university, are due Dec. 1.
High school seniors who have resided in city for at least their junior and senior years and have attended any Detroit high school for all four years, are eligible. Students can go www.detroitpromise.com/how-to-register/ to examine requirements and complete an application.
The Detroit Promise Scholarship has two tracks, one for those attending community college and another for those who plan to attend a four-year university. Each track has its own application requirements. A variety of Michigan colleges and universities participate in the Detroit Promise Scholarship program.
Cass Tech counselor Wenday Edwards said many Cass Tech seniors have received the Detroit Promise Scholarship throughout the years and she encourages all seniors to apply.
“Quite a few of my students have gotten that scholarship and they were able to get tuition paid for at universities,” Edwards said.
