January Scholarship 2016

Monday, November 16, 2015

If a student-athlete takes the current SAT before March 2016 and then takes the redesigned SAT at a later date, the NCAA Eligibility Center will not combine section scores from the current and redesigned SAT when determining the student-athlete's initial eligibility. The NCAA Eligibility Center will only combine section scores from the same version of the test. Because the redesigned SAT varies in design and measures different academic concepts than the current SAT, a numerical score on the current test may not be equivalent to the same numerical score on the redesigned test.

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 2016 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.
*Students should check with their school to ensure that their desired degree or technical certificate is Pell-eligible. Programs that are not Pell-eligible will not be covered by the Detroit Scholarship Fund.
