The Richmond Promise, a community wide College Scholarship Fund and College Success Program, is hosting a series of “Spring Workshops” aimed at helping graduating Richmond students complete applications to secure college scholarships.
The deadline to submit the Richmond Promise scholarship application is March 10, 2017; to be eligible, students must complete their FAFSA/Dream Act applications by March 2, 2017.
According to Richmond Promise, in an effort to assist students and families with completing their financial aid and Richmond Promise applications, they will host open workshops March 1, 2, 7, 9 and 10 from 3-7 p.m. at 450 Civic Center Plaza in Richmond.
To qualify to be a Richmond Promise scholar, Richmond students must have been a Richmond or North Richmond resident for at least four years; be graduating from a high school within the WCCUSD boundaries; and have attended local schools since the ninth grade. Read more about the scholarship guidelines here.
According to Richmond Promise Executive Director Jessie Stewart via an email correspondence, the organization “tripled the number of submitted applications in the week before winter break.” Stewart noted that by mid-December, “261 students [had] registered and 102 applications [had] been submitted,” and added that “We know there are many more students who are eligible and look forward to working…to ensure all eligible students take advantage of this opportunity!”
At the launch of the Richmond Promise in January 2016, Richmond City Manager Bill Lindsay announced that “Under this Richmond Promise Program, every Richmond or North Richmond resident who has attended a local school since at least the ninth grade will be eligible for up to $1,500 per college year, up to $6,000 total, for their college education, predicated on a student’s length of time as a Richmond resident.”
The program was born of a commitment by Chevron Richmond to invest $35 million over a 10 year period to fund post-secondary education for Richmond students; it was made as part of the Environmental and Community Investment Agreement when the Richmond City Council approved the Chevron Modernization Project in July 2014.
Ultimately, Richmond Promise aims to promote a college-going culture among Richmond students.
