‘Get a mask. Get the test. Get the vaccine’: Sen. Hughes, Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes announce #StopTheVirus campaign
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.
