Subject: Wayne County Circuit Court Signs Employee Scholarship Agreement with University of Michigan Dearborn


DETROIT, MI, November 29, 2018 - On November 26, 2018, the University of Michigan-Dearborn renewed its Community Service Personnel Scholarship program to employees of the Third Circuit Court (Wayne County). The participation agreements were formally signed by Third Circuit Court Chief Judge Robert J. Colombo, Jr., UMD Provost & Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs Catherine A. Davy, and Third Circuit Court Administrator Zenell Brown. Present for the signing also was Dr. Donald Shelton and Third Circuit Court Judge Annette J. Berry.

The Community Service Personnel Scholarship program at the University of Michigan-Dearborn was established to recognize the service of public safety personnel to our communities and to encourage them to pursue or continue their educational goals. The program provides a scholarship valued at 20% of tuition and fees for public safety employees at partnering organizations. Although administered through the Criminal Justice Studies Program, the scholarship is available for degree-seeking students in any UMD department or program and can be used for all undergraduate and graduate programs.

“This agreement presents a tremendous opportunity for our employees to further their education and promote employment opportunities at an excellent university, while receiving a significant reduction in tuition. This is a wonderful program and I encourage all of our employees to take advantage of this opportunity,” Chief Judge Colombo said.
