Students who enroll at UConn through the New Haven Promise program will soon receive $5,000 in extra scholarship money each year to help ensure that college is affordable and accessible to them.

UConn President Susan Herbst announced today that UConn is committing $5,000 in scholarship money to each New Haven Promise scholar attending UConn, starting in fall 2016. It will supplement the scholarship that New Haven Promise provides to those who remain continuously enrolled in city public and charter schools, maintain satisfactory grades, contribute service to the city, and enroll in UConn following their graduation.
