Impact of the Pittsburgh Promise Research

University Center for Social and Urban Research   (Pittsburgh)

March 2012 to August 2012

The PNCIS and education researchers at the University of Pittsburgh are convening a group of interested stakeholders from education and community development fields to develop a common research agenda to guide our work. Many in Pittsburgh are interested in learning more about how families choose schools and communities, and how the Pittsburgh Promise is influencing these decisions. The Pittsburgh Promise offers a scholarship of up to $10,000 per year to students of a Pittsburgh Public or Pittsburgh Charter school in pursuit of their postsecondary education.
