What is the Detroit Promise Zone?

Print Friendly and PDF

The Detroit Promise Zone is an authority Mayor Mike Duggan and the Detroit City Council created in the fall of 2015 to dedicate a portion of tax dollars to permanently fund two-year scholarships.

The Detroit Promise and the Promise Zone will provide a tuition-free path to an associate’s degree at a community college for a graduate of any Detroit high school – no matter whether private, public, or charter. The program will also enable many young Detroiters to begin their post-college careers free of debt.

The Michigan Education Excellence Foundation currently funds the Detroit Promise scholarships and operations. The Promise Zone Authority will begin providing revenue in 2018.
