About this grant

The Auto Career Project, sponsored by Lawrence Technological University in conjunction with the Ferndale School District, has resulted in a career academy designed to build a pathway for central city youth in Southeast Michigan into good-paying employment in the automotive industry. Over the next two years, the project will evolve into a four-year high school with an enrollment of 500. This grant increase will partially support an advertisement campaign to recruit 400 candidates for the 150 freshman slots available this year.
