New Haven Promise is glad to offer the Passport to Promise scholarship, a grant for understudies with an aggregate, weighted GPA between 2.5-2.99. This grant is intended to perceive understudies who have exhibited a solid, hard-working attitude and resource-seeking abilities, which have empowered them to work on their grades during their secondary school profession. The foundation will grant a limit of 20 one-time grants in the measure of $1,000. This cash will be delivered more than two semesters equally straightforwardly to your in-state school at the expense of educational cost.
The final scholarship beneficiaries who keep a 2.0 GPA or higher every semester of their first year will be qualified for a full Promise Scholarship in the ensuing years. To be eligible for the scholarship program, you must be a New Haven inhabitant in the New Haven government-funded educational system as of October 1 of your ninth-grade year. Also, you must have incredible civic behaviour in grades 9-12, including a positive disciplinary record, at least 40 hours of local area administration, and 90% participation or better during secondary school (which means close to 72 absences).
