The Pittsburgh Promise

Established in December 2007 and initially housed at the Pittsburgh Foundation, The Pittsburgh Promise is designed to help students and families of the Pittsburgh Public Schools System prepare and pay for education beyond high school at a Pennsylvania state college, with scholarships up to $40,000 for four years of college. The fund was established through a 10-year, $100 million commitment from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.  As of February 2015, The Pittsburgh Promise had awarded $57.1 million in scholarships to 5,584 students.
