The Richmond Promise Scholarship

The core of the Richmond Promise model is a community-wide scholarship of up to $6,000 over four years that can be used at any 2-year, 4-year, or CTE post-secondary institution. We are proud to support multiple pathways to higher education. There are currently over 1500 Scholars attending over 100 different colleges and universities across the country.

We work with students from all eligible schools to complete our scholarship application on-time. But completing the application is just where we begin. Once a student becomes a Richmond Promise Scholar, we work with them through the transition between high school and college to make sure they enroll full-time and on-time. Then we support our Scholars all the way through graduation through our college success programming.

Our goal is to ensure our Scholars not only make it to college, but graduate with the tools and experience necessary to thrive in their career of choice.

Our 2021-2022 Richmond Promise Scholarship will be open from October 1st, 2020 – March 14th, 2021! Click here to learn more about the scholarship and eligibility requirements. You can also find the direct links to our scholarship application below:
