PPS Financial Aid Nights for high school seniors


December 29, 2009

Pittsburgh Public Schools seniors and their families can get information about completing a Pittsburgh Promise application at one of the school district's Financial Aid Nights.

Families will also learn about filling out the Free Application for Financial Aid (FAFSA), which is one of the steps required to receive a Promise scholarship.

Currently, graduates of the Pittsburgh Public Schools who are eligible have the opportunity to receive a scholarship from The Promise that would pay up to $5,000 each year for up to four years of tuition. Even students who already have scholarships to cover the full cost of tuition may be eligible for a minimum award of up to $1,000 through The Promise.

Representatives from the Pittsburgh Public Schools, Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA), Negro Educational Emergency Drive (NEED), and colleges will be on hand to speak about The Pittsburgh Promise and the various types of financial aid available to students including grants, loans and work-study.

Pittsburgh Public Schools parents and students may attend any of the following Financial Aid Nights.
