The Michigan Chronicle presents the S.W.A.G. Awards (Students Wired for Achievement and Greatness) Scholarship program.
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.
