What is cost of attendance?

Cost of attendance is the total cost of tuition, mandatory fees, books, transportation, room and board, and miscellaneous expenses to attend a particular institution. The Detroit Promise will not contribute funds beyond tuition and mandatory fees, however, additional resources exist to help students meet other costs.

Scholarship Resources

There are many scholarships available beyond academic and athletic possibilities. Some may ask students to submit a written or photo essay or a research project, and others may be based on religious affiliation, ethnicity, talents and interests, hobbies and even left or right handedness. Scholarships can help cover the additional costs of college such as books, transportation, a computer, dependent care and more.  Students can apply to scholarships year-round as long as they are attending school or planning to return to school, so it is important to continually look for scholarship opportunities.

How can I look for scholarships, safely?

As you search for scholarships online, there are several things that you should always keep in mind:

The financial aid office is another great resource for finding available scholarships and grants at your institution.

Furthermore, professors from colleges and universities everywhere post power points, class notes and study guides from their lectures all over the internet. Simply search for the topic in your favorite search engine and find a wealth of information.

Employment Resources

Co-ops, internship offices and the career services departments can help students find work-study positions and internship/co-op opportunities that could provide income to offset the costs of college. Also, work-study positions, offices and restaurants across campus will employ students and some student organizations offer stipends and/or scholarships to student leaders.
