Hope Scholarship

Bringing Hope Back Home was founded in 2017 to restore hope to Detroit high school students in their ability to apply and get accepted to college. To celebrate our 5 year anniversary, we are proud to announce our first ever scholarship, the Hope Scholarship! We are excited to offer two (2) $2500 scholarships to graduating high school seniors in Michigan.

Congratulations to our 2022 Hope Scholars, Kasandra Negrete and William Harper!
