For questions about the Detroit Promise Zone Scholarship, please click here. Despite the similarity in names, there is no overlap. Our program is for DPS students only. Dr. Pernick, the founder of the Detroit College Promise, strongly believes that the best way to create a strong Detroit is for Detroit parents to enroll their children in DPS, get as active as possible in Detroit Public Schools, and support the Detroit College Promise.
