Enroll in a DPS school and get a scholarship! The mission of The Detroit College Promise is to motivate Detroit students to make education a priority. We offer a universal scholarship, good at any Michigan public college or university, simply for attending a Detroit Public School and living in Detroit grades 9-12, and completing some simple paperwork on time. Beginning with the class of 2018, we have eliminated the registration requirement to make the process even easier.

The scholarships will be sent in the Fall 2015 semester to each college / university, after they confirm that students are taking at least 12 credits after the drop/add deadline.
The deadline for this year's scholarship has passed, but students have 10 years from graduation to claim their award. Information for next year's scholarship will be announced in September 2015.
