In collaboration with internal and external partners, Columbus Promise Advisors will empower Columbus Promise scholars to develop skills, behaviors and habits that contribute to success in and beyond college.
If you complete these steps, you will be eligible to receive The Columbus Promise Scholarship award for the 2022-2023 school year. The Priority Deadline to apply is April 15, 2022.
