  • Scholarship Description
  • The Pittsburgh Promise scholarship is a big idea and a real commitment: if you live in the city and attend Pittsburgh Public schools from 9th grade on, a Promise scholarship will be waiting for you at graduation. The Promise is not like most scholarships. You don't have to be a straight-A student or a star athlete to be eligible for The Pittsburgh Promise. The Promise scholarship is not need-based. Your family’s income does not factor into the decision. It is not a competitive process. If you meet the requirements, you receive the scholarship. Neither is it a limited process, as you and all of your siblings can receive it. If you can dream of a promising future and are willing to work hard to get there, the scholarship will be waiting for you.

    To receive the scholarship, The Promise requires that you:
    -Live in the City of Pittsburgh, continuously, without interruption, for at least the four years of high school
    -Attend Pittsburgh Public Schools, continuously, without interruption, from at least the beginning of 9th grade, and through to graduation
    -Graduate with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better.
    -Maintain an attendance record of 90%.
    -Use your scholarship at an accredited college, university, or trade and technical school in Pennsylvania
    -File the FAFSA (FAFSA.gov) and state grant form

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.

by Susan Dutca

Don't have the necessary funds to pay your college tuition? That may be a problem if you plan to attend colleges or universities like Haverford College, where they will suspend their admissions office's "need blind" application review policy, at least temporarily.
