Edinboro to offer special scholarship to Pittsburgh Promise students

Officials at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania Wednesday announced they have inked an agreement to offer a special scholarship beginning in fall 2019 to recipients of the Pittsburgh Promise who enroll in the northwestern Pennsylvania school.

A non-profit partnership designed to promote post-secondary enrollment for high school graduates, the Pittsburgh Promise and Edinboro recently agreed to a Preferred College Partner status, which provides Pittsburgh students with additional aid of $2,500 per year for on-campus housing.

The housing award, good for a maximum of four-years, is contingent upon a student’s satisfactory academic progress. The award will be coupled with the Pittsburgh Promise that awards graduates of the Pittsburgh Public Schools scholarships of up to $5,000 a year.

Both awards are in addition to any other financial aid for which a student may qualify.

“We believe the Pittsburgh Promise will open the doors for more students to attend Edinboro University. It’s our goal to help create these new opportunities while easing some of the financial burdens of college costs,” said Dr. William Edmonds, Edinboro’s vice president for enrollment management.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
