New Haven’s College Commitment

Facebook Res-1
Opportunities abound for college-bound students in New Haven.

The Yale University-funded New Haven Promise not only helps students financially, the program leverages its benefits to increase institutional grants for recipients and it provides a link between the scholars and the business community.

New Haven Promise will be hosting sessions for potential qualifiers (which includes being a resident of the city and enrolled in a New Haven public high school). Students and parents can learn more about the process and benefits by attending one of these virtual events, one in English and one in Spanish.

UPCOMING NEW HAVEN PROMISE WORKSHOPS

In addition, the New Haven Scholarship Fund has been supporting Elm City students for six decades. There is also a wide range of other scholarships which run from the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven.

But an anchor to all this educational opportunity is access to federal financial aid in the form of Pell Grants. If students navigate all the paperwork, it is not uncommon for New Haveners to fund more than 70 percent of their education through grants and scholarships.

To ensure this kind of assistance for students, FAFSA New Haven is committed to providing support in filing for federal aid, thus making sure that no money is left on the table.
