The Pittsburgh Promise has approved doubling the potential amount of Promise scholarships from a possible maximum of $20,000 to a possible maximum of $40,000 per student over the course of a four-year higher education program.

“Promise-readiness is at the heart of our reform efforts in the Pittsburgh Public Schools and our District continues to strive for every opportunity to increase achievement among all of our students,” said Superintendent Linda Lane. “Our administrators, teachers, parents, students and the entire District are grateful for the community’s support and the motivation that the Promise scholarship opportunity provides.”

The Pittsburgh Public Schools’ Class of 2012, this year’s 11th graders, will be the first students to be eligible for up to $20,000 in additional scholarship support from The Promise, bringing the total scholarship potential to $40,000 and to $10,000 per year, which is up from $5,000.
