The Pittsburgh Promise scholarship is a big idea and a real commitment: if you live in the city and attend Pittsburgh Public Schools from day one of 9th grade on, a Promise scholarship will be waiting for you at graduation. The maximum award for graduates of the Class of 2018 and beyond is up to $5,000 per year or $20,000 total. 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.
