3 September 2010


This is our Bonus Back To School email about The Detroit College Promise. This fall, we will offer scholarships to all Detroit Public School graduates to attend Michigan public colleges and universities, if they live in Detroit and register by December 1, 2010.  This scholarship is only offered to students enrolled in DPS.

Welcome Back to School!
We want to welcome everyone back to school! We hope everyone enjoyed their summer and is ready to make this year even better than last!

Enroll in DPS Get a Scholarship Campaign Kicks Off
We issued a Press Release about the expansion of our program to all DPS graduates beginning with the class of 2011.  Make sure all your friends, neighbors and relatives in grades 9-12 are registered by December 1, 2010.  Registration is online or on paper, and takes only 2 minutes.  High school students must register by December 1, 2010, or they cannot receive our scholarship.  FYI - we are starting a $2 million fundraising drive to increase the financial incentive / scholarship to $5000 per student, so don't miss out! 

Students can register online by following the simple instructions at http://www.detroitcollegepromise.com/FlyerHowToEnroll.pdf or by filling out our one page application at http://www.detroitcollegepromise.com/scholarshipapplication.pdf.  We are also registering students in Middle School. For those students, the deadline is December 1 of their 9th grade year.
