The Michigan Chronicle and TCF Bank present the S.W.A.G. (Students Wired for Achievement and Greatness) Scholarship Awards. The SWAG Awards were created to ensure that students who demonstrate leadership in areas other than academics have access to scholarship dollars. The program is aimed at students with grade point averages of 2.25 who are passionate about leadership and community service. Applicants must be current high school seniors who live in Detroit and attend a Detroit Public School Community District high school or a charter school within the city.
The goal of the S.W.A.G. Scholarship Awards is to build confidence, ensure a better future for Detroit teens, provide a village of support for parents, educators, and together build strong future community and business leaders. The S.W.A.G Scholarship Awards recipients will be recognized in the upcoming spring. Scholarship grant distribution will occur during the fall/winter of the upcoming school semester.
