Promise Scholarships: A College Access Agenda

On Thursday, May 14, 2015, The Alliance for Excellent education held a webinar on promise programs. All across the country, cities and states have taken on a bold approach to college access—free college tuition for eligible students. These programs, called “promise programs” or “place-based college scholarships,” are currently active in more than forty cities and a handful of states. Promise programs inspire school improvement within secondary schools and create lasting partnerships and greater alignment between the K–12 and postsecondary systems that have led to promising outcomes for students who are historically underserved. Data show that low-income students and students of color enrolled in promise programs have higher high school graduation rates, college enrollment, and attainment than their peers.
