The Collab announces its Video ScholarshipCompetition for Detroit Public School (DPS) students. Four high school seniors will be selected to receive a scholarship worth $500 each. The scholarships are a result of proceeds raised from a February 13th, 2016 event called The Connection: A night of Art, Music, and Fellowship. The Collab is a conglomerate of four small businesses including Determination Media, DREAM Clothing, Bohemian Jones, and K. Welsh Designs that were started by four entrepreneurs from the city of Detroit.
Students are asked to creatively answer the question “How have you helped positively impact the city of Detroit and what are your plans to continue impacting the city?” in a 5 minutes or less video. Videos are to be submitted along with a completed scholarship packet by midnight April 17th, 2016. Official scholarship application can be downloaded at dreamclothing.biz and determinationmedia.com.
The Collab hosted a charity art showcase in February called The Connection: A night of Art, Music, and Fellowship to raise scholarship money for DPS students. “This year has been a challenging year for DPS students with all the negative attention the school system has received this academic year. We wanted to do something to reach back and help the students of today so that they can make a difference tomorrow.”
