News and Events
Have you seen our recent Impact Report? Take a look inside to learn how we’re helping local students succeed.
For the first time, the Next Level Scholars (NLS) program launched an all-virtual plan for students. The priority of the NLS program is to provide the best possible support to students as they prepare for success in life after high school. In order to achieve this, the program pivoted to introduce new features.
In 2020, social gatherings transitioned into virtual gatherings, and Detroit Regional Dollars for Scholars (DRDFS) Alumni Network stuck together through this change. Growing larger with each graduating class, the students of the Alumni Network turn to each other for support and a sense of community.
Join Detroit Regional Dollars for Scholars at our first-ever virtual Celebration Luncheon. The next-best thing to gathering in person is gathering safely online from the comfort of your home or office!
Detroit Regional Dollars for Scholars is proud to provide academic support and resources to more than 350 local students each year, and all of this is made possible by our sponsors.
It is important that our students feel supported during times of change. We are dedicated to providing students with the resources and programming they need to succeed and remain on the path to higher education whether they are studying from home or from their classrooms.
DRDFS supporters from all over Southeast Michigan gathered in Detroit’s Campus Martius Park to celebrate 30 years of helping local students prepare for life after high school.
Thanks to the Jamie and Denise Jacob Family Foundation and our Board of Directors, DRDFS has been able to provide students with laptops, a Wi-Fi hot-spot, gift cards to get groceries, and more, exceeding $3,600 in aid.
Suited for Success is a special time for our students, and is also an event that many of our supporters and students’ families enjoy attending as well. With help from the Michigan College Access Network (MCAN), we were able to assemble individually tailored Suited for Success kits, and mail one to each of their homes.
Detroit Regional Dollars for Scholars is proud to partner with Mason Senior High School in Erie, Michigan, since 2015.
