For example, Scholars Summit is an opportunity for our top scholars to interview to increase their merit award by an additional $1,000-$4,000! Any students involved in the performing arts may audition for scholarships before March 1 (they do not have to be a music major or minor to earn a performance scholarship). You can also find our interest based scholarships here, including fine arts, Pre-Law, Religious Leadership, Business, and more.

Detroit Public Schools Student of the Week

East English Village senior QB Anton Curtis named PSL Proud Strong Learner of the Week.


East English Village senior quarterback Anton Curtis accounted for five touchdowns to lead the Bulldogs’ 40-21 MHSAA Division 2 district semifinal victory Saturday against Port Huron and has been named the Detroit Public School League Proud Strong Learner of the Week.
“He played like a senior quarterback should,’’ the Ville coach Rod Oden said of the 6-2, 175-pound three-year starter.
“He made good decisions with the football all game long. His senior leadership was evident on the field.”
