Promise Expands Schools Students Can Attend
The Pittsburgh Promise has announced that it will be expanding the list of schools where students can use the program's scholarships. Previously the Promise was only available to students who attended any state or public university or private schools within Allegheny County. The new list will now include every college, university or trade school in the state. Funding for the Promise is close to meeting its goals for this year, having received $12 million out of $15 million needed to unlock $10 million in donations made by UPMC.
