Effective fall of 2018, the Promise Scholarship program will remove the tuition barrier that often stops promising young high school graduates from pursuing their education while connecting them to support services to help ensure success. The three-year pilot effort will also be available to high school graduates in 2019 and 2020. The above information is taken from the Program’s website.
