Southern Wayne County Regional Chamber Scholarship
Scholarship Sponsored by Southeast Michigan Community Foundation
The purpose of the Southern Wayne County Regional Chamber Scholarship Program is to assist students from Southern Wayne County communities to pursue a program of undergraduate education. Up to two renewable scholarships of $1,000 each will be awarded to students entering college as a freshman in the fall. Award determinations will be made with the assistance of the Southern Wayne County Regional Chamber Scholarship Program Advisory Committee.
In making the selections, the Advisory Committee will award one scholarship to a student who has overcome an "at-risk" barrier during their education career and one scholarship to a student who has pursued a vocational or career technical curriculum in high school. Scholarship recipients may reapply in each of three additional years, if appropriate.
