Women’s History Month is Here! We want to share HER story!
March is Women’s History Month and throughout the month, you’ll see people honoring the wonderful accomplishments of women and their amazing contributions to the betterment of our society. We all know stories of women such as Harriet Tubman, who pioneered on the Underground Railroad; Rosa Parks, whose challenge to Jim Crow helped fuel the national civil rights movement; or Marie Curie and her many contributions to science, but we know women’s history goes so much further. That’s why we want YOU to help us tell HER story.

Senator Vincent Hughes Attends the Department of Community & Economic Development 2019-20 Budget Hearing
One of the most troubling challenges facing many students and families across Pennsylvania is the high cost of education. This is often such a high hurdle that many students simply forgo a college education and are prevented from acquiring the skills necessary to gain better positions with higher wages.
The education gap caused by a lack of access to college or advanced education is, for many low-and-middle income students, the one faction preventing them from gaining traction in the workplace. In our increasingly complex and high-tech economy, it is essential that we make, then fulfill, the promise to Pennsylvania students: YOU will have access to a high-quality education without the burdens of crippling debt.
That’s what the Pennsylvania Promise is all about. The Pennsylvania Promise is available to students with family incomes of $110,000 or less. It provides for grants of at least $1,000 per year for community college students for two years and a minimum of $2,500 per year for four years to Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Schools and state related institutions.
The program also provides $50 million for adults in families whose incomes are less than $110,000 to acquire up to four years of postsecondary credit.
