College for Creative Studies Scholarship Reception
Private reception for Detroit Dream Scholars at the College for Creative Studies.
The Detroit Dream Scholars Fund was established in September 2011 with the purpose of providing scholarships for students from Detroit to attend the College for Creative Studies (CCS) as undergraduates.
In conjunction with making his own gift, Mitch Albom has challenged 11 community members to join him so that he can provide a “Detroit Dozen” – 12 scholarships of $60,000 each over four years. The “Detroit Dozen” will provide opportunities to 12 deserving students without financial means to go to college. Each scholarship recipient is required to work on a public art project in the summer as a way of giving back to the City of Detroit.
