The Better Detroit Youth Movement and The Infinite Scholars Program are hosting The 3rd Annual Detroit Scholarship Fair at Cobo Hall on September 20, an event that annually awards millions in four-year college scholarships to Detroit area high school juniors and seniors.
As many as 40 colleges will be participating scholarships at this year’s event. Attending students need to bring multiple copies of their transcript with ACT/SAT score, two letters of recommendation, a resume, and an essay on “Why I want to go to college.” Students who register for the fair online at www.mohela.com/infinitescholar
will automatically have their information forwarded to dozens of colleges linked to the website.
This free event will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at Cobo Hall (Ambassador Room) in Downtown Detroit. Last year’s fair attracted more than 2,500 high school students throughout Southeast Michigan.
The BDYM is a non-profit coalition with a volunteer base of more than 250 caring Detroiters who have helped to positively impact the lives of more than 30,000 children, teens and young adults. The BDYM regularly hosts meetings and events to encourage volunteerism, mentoring and program support, and to engage the community-at-large. Past BDYM events include The Million Father March (scheduled for Labor Day, 2011), The March for Detroit Youth, The Motor City YouthFest and Live In Peace Art Parties.
