The Pittsburgh Promise

It Lives in All of Us

The Pittsburgh Promise is a big idea and a concrete commitment to all children who graduate from Pittsburgh Public Schools and who live in the city of Pittsburgh. Those who maintain an average GPA of 2.5 and an attendance record of 90 percent will earn up to $30,000 (paid over four years) to attend any accredited post-secondary institution in Pennsylvania (online colleges are excepted). The Promise scholarship is not need-based - the family's income does not factor into the decision, and as many children in a family who qualify may receive it. Nor is it a competitive process - if they are eligible, they receive the scholarship. Recipients must maintain a college GPA of 2.0 and a full-time class load. And, the scholarship is just that, a scholarship; it is not a loan to be repaid.

“One big thing about Pittsburgh is its sense of pride, of caring about each other. People matter here.”
