Student Scholarship Program

The College Promise Commitment

The College Promise Program provides a life-changing opportunity for 50 Montgomery County students per year. These students, whose lives have been impacted by poverty, are identified and selected during their 8th grade year. Each student is supported through high school by a caring adult mentor who will meet with them weekly for 30 to 60 minutes at their school and through programming offered by the College Promise Program.

The selected students, upon the successful completion of high school and meeting the entrance requirements of partner colleges or universities, are awarded scholarships that allow them to attend college at little to no cost to them or their families. Partner colleges and universities include: Sinclair Community College, Miami University Regionals, Central State University, Denison University, Kettering College, Miami University, the University of Dayton, Wilmington College, and Wright State University.

The College Promise Impact

By breaking the cycle of poverty for 500 Montgomery County Students, the College Promise Program has a profound impact on not only their quality of life but also on the quality of life of each of our communities. By attaining their college education at a regional college or university, College Promise students will be attractive to Montgomery County Employers, which will retain our investment right here at home.
