Michigan Education Excellence Foundation

$280,000

This grant will provide operating and programmatic support to the Michigan Education Excellence Foundation (MEEF), which serves as a champion, fundraiser, and fiduciary for the Detroit Promise scholarship program. Grant dollars will be targeted towards outreach to students to ensure Detroit youth are part of a college-going culture, and that the cost of attendance is not a perceived barrier. This grant will also enable the design and pilot implementation of an effort to effectively engage youth earlier, before their senior year in high school.
