The Detroit Scholarship Fund (DSF), administered by the Detroit Regional Chamber, ensures that any Detroit-resident student graduating in the spring of 2013 from a high school in the city of Detroit will have a tuition-free path to an associate degree or technical certificate at any one of five participating community colleges.

In 2011, Governor Rick Snyder announced his intention to provide Detroit high school graduates with a tuition-free path to an associate degree or technical certificate. The Detroit Regional Chamber is now pleased to administer the new Detroit Scholarship Fund to fulfill the Governor’s pledge.
How do I qualify? Register here: Detroit Scholarship Find Registration

  • Attend any high school in the city of Detroit for at least two years and graduate in the spring of 2013 (must be a Detroit resident).

Students will not need to take out loans or apply other scholarship dollars toward their tuition and mandatory fees beyond what they receive in Pell and TIP funding.
Once enrolled at a participating community college, students must complete at least 24 credit hours per year that meet Pell-eligibility, satisfactory academic progress, and satisfactory academic standing.
