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, up to a $40,000 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.
