MDRC combines research, experience and know-how to improve the lives of low-income individuals and influence public policy and practice. This grant will support the randomized control trial of the Detroit Promise Path, a support program for students participating in the Detroit Promise Scholarship. The Detroit Promise, administered by the Detroit Regional Chamber, is a “last dollar” program allowing the city’s high school graduates to attend local colleges tuition-free.
