Detroit High School Graduates Can Get a 2 Year Degree. For Free.

If you apply before June 30th, 2013 graduates of high schools in the city of Detroit (NOT ONLY Detroit Public Schools) can get a path to a free 2 year degree from a local community college.  Here's how: the Detroit Scholarship Fund will pay for the cost of school beyond what Pell and TIP can pay (but you must apply for those), if you attend one of these two-year schools: Henry Ford, Macomb, Oakland, Schoolcraft, and Wayne County Community College.  Just register by June 30th, 2013, and you could go through the first 2 years of your post-high school, free.
