Dorsey Schools, a trusted name in career education in Michigan for over 80 years, recently awarded nearly $50,000 in Scholarships to students. Dorsey Schools scholarships are opportunities available to their students to assist them in funding their education. Scholarship opportunities are usually communicated through the Financial Aid Department at Dorsey Schools, and one of the main goals of the Financial Aid Department is to assist as many eligible students as possible with being aware of the resources available to help fund their education. Nowadays, scholarships can assist students in paying for their educational expenses – and scholarships (traditionally) don’t have to be paid back! For anyone who has pursued higher education, they know that the decision to go back to school can seem like an expensive investment, which is part of the reason why students have found scholarships to be helpful in furthering their education.
