What is The Pittsburgh Promise?
The Pittsburgh Promise is essentially three promises in one. We promise the following to those who live in the City of Pittsburgh and attend Pittsburgh Public Schools:
1. We will provide you with up to $40,000 as a scholarship to pursue undergraduate higher education.
2. We will reform our urban public schools so that we are preparing you well for success in higher education.
3. We will develop our urban neighborhoods so that where you live and go to school is a place that is conducive to learning.
Beyond that, The Promise invigorates the entire community, improves the quality of life in the region, and creates a highly qualified workforce that will meet the needs of local employers, both now and in the future.
