Detroit Promise Scholarship
The Detroit Promise provides last-dollar funding for students who live in the city of Detroit and will graduate from any high school located in Detroit in 2018. The Detroit Promise provides Detroit youth a tuition-free path to earn a postsecondary credential at a number of institutions after any Pell and/or TIP funding a student receives has been applied to the tuition and mandatory fees bill.
