Detroit Public School League graduating senior football players should apply now for the Calvin Johnson Jr. Foundation Scholarship.
The scholarship, sponsored by the Detroit Lions’ star wide receiver’s foundation, is open to seniors who have no more than a partial college football scholarship, and have a least a 2.5 grade point average. The deadline to apply is May 25th. Click here for the application: CJJRF Scholarship Application 2012
In the past three years, the CJJRF has awarded two dozen scholarships to young scholar-athletes in Atlanta, Johnson’s hometown, and his home away from home in Detroit.
Six scholarships will be presented by Johnson at the annual Catching Dreams athlete extravaganza and scholarship dinner June 23 at the Westin Cadillac Book Hotel in downtown Detroit.
