The Michigan Youth Appreciation Foundation invites graduating high school students to apply for an educational scholarship in connection with Michigan’s largest youth-centric event, Metro Detroit Youth Day (MDYD). Students can submit an application and essay prior to the April 27 deadline.
Students graduating from a public, parochial, private or charter school who have been accepted into a four year university or college or a two year community college program and have confirmed attendance for fall enrollment are eligible to apply.
“We’re proud to have awarded more than 1,500 scholarships to Metro Detroit students since we began the educational initiative in 1991,” said Ed Deeb, founder and chairman of Metro Detroit Youth Day. “We extend our thanks to the community and local organizations for the support we’ve received over the years and hope to inspire students to discover their passion and continue their education.”
The Foundation will recognize scholarship recipients at the 36th annual Metro Detroit Youth Day event on Belle Isle Wednesday, July 11.
Applicants can download the application and submission instructions at http://www. metrodetroityouthday.org/ forms.html.
