Detroit Scholarship Fund

What is the Detroit Scholarship Fund?

The Detroit Scholarship Fund (DSF), administered by the Detroit Regional Chamber, ensures that any Detroit-resident student graduating in the spring of 2014 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 Detroit Scholarship Fund to fulfill the Governor’s pledge.
