Support the Urban Solutions Scholarship Fund
Annual Scholarship Fundraising Campaign
For more than 30 years, Urban Solutions has helped young people get closer to their dream of higher education. Since 1982 Urban Solutions has award scholarships named in honor of influential Detroiters. It was inspired by entrepreneur and education benefactor Pressley Green.
It all started in 1982 with The Pressley Green Scholarship, in honor of Pressley Green, a successful Detroit business leader that realized that he had a duty to help our young people reach their goals. He did this by personally financing the education of many young people in the community.
Mr. Green was brutally murdered by several misdirected young men, lost in the wrong pursuit of life. Today, Urban Solutions, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) corporation continues this tradition of support with the generous help of the many, concerned community leaders, and family members. Our young people are the future and they need you.
Each year students are selected that have proven themselves academically and have demonstrated a commitment to the community. These scholarship funds are used for gap financing where a few dollars will make up the difference between attending and not attending school. We have found that as little as a $1000.00 to $1500.00 can make all the difference.
