June of 2011, Governor Rick Snyder announced a plan to provide every young person in Detroit with financial assistance toward a two-
year associate degree or technical certificate. The DSF will cover any difference between the full cost of tuition and mandatory fees
and the amount of Pell and TIP grants offered to students to attend any of the five community colleges in the tri-county area: Wayne
County Community College District, Macomb Community College, Schoolcraft College, Oakland Community College and Henry Ford
Community College. If a student does not qualify for any grant money for college the scholarship will cover THE FULL TUITION AND
Requirements for DSF Scholarship:
1. Apply for financial aid on-line at www.fafsa.gov.
2. Graduate from a high school in Detroit.
Tuesday, April 23 at 9:00 a.m. representatives from the DSF will be here at CMA to register all Seniors for this scholarship opportunity.
It is a good back up plan for students, in case your four year college choice does not work out. Seniors will be allowed to use their cell
phones in the lunchroom to complete the registration process.

program that encourages eligible students to complete high school by providing tuition assistance for the first two years of college and
beyond. To meet the financial eligibility requirement, a student must have (or have had) Medicaid coverage for 24 months within a 36-
consecutive-month period as identified by the Michigan Department of Human Services (DHS). TIP provides assistance in two phases.
Phase I covers tuition and mandatory fee charges for eligible students enrolled in a credit-based associate degree or certificate
program at a participating Michigan community college, public university, degree-granting independent college, federal tribally-
controlled college or Focus: HOPE. Phase II provides a maximum of $2,000 total tuition assistance for credits earned in a four-year
program at an in-state, degree-granting college or university.
