The Michigan Chronicle presents the S.W.A.G. Awards (Students Wired for Achievement and Greatness) Scholarship program.
“Many scholarship programs are awarded solely based on academic performance, however, the S.W.A.G. awards were specifically created to ensure that more Detroit-area minority students that demonstrate leadership in multiple areas, other than grades, have access to scholarships,” said publisher of the Michigan Chronicle Hiram E. Jackson.
The S.W.A.G Awards winning recipients will be recognized and receive a scholarship grant in the Spring of 2018. Current high school seniors who are planning to attend college or a trade school in the Fall of 2018, have at least a 2.5 GPA, and have demonstrated a commitment to community, service and integrity are eligible to apply.
The S.W.A.G. Awards’ goal is to build confidence and ensure a better future for Detroit-area teens, provide a village of support for parents and educators, and together, build strong future community and business leaders.
