New Haven Promise Applications Due April 2 
 
New Haven Promise scholarship applications for all high school seniors are due April 2. Students may register and apply at newhavenpromise.org. 
 
Last year, 150 students qualified for a Promise scholarship and currently 105 Promise scholars are enrolled at 16 colleges and universities across Connecticut.  Additionally, more than 2,300 students have signed Promise pledges this year promising to earn good grades, have good attendance and demonstrate the good civic behavior required to earn a Promise scholarship.  A college-going curriculum has also been implemented in every preK-8 school districtwide.  
 
Promise scholarships are being phased in. Last year's seniors qualified for up to 25% of the scholarship. The Class of 2012 is eligible for up to 50 percent of tuition coverage at in-state public colleges and universities and up to $1250 at in-state private nonprofit colleges and universities. New Haven Promise is housed at and administered by The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. Scholarships are paid for by Yale University. Additional support comes from Yale-New Haven Hospital and Wells Fargo.
Students should talk to their School Guidance Counselors for additional information on New Haven Promise.
