The Pittsburgh Promise this week announced that it is cutting its scholarship for college tuition to $5,000 — down from $10,000 in ’15, the Post-Gazette reports. This most recent change makes more students eligible for the support, starting with the Class of 2018, and eliminates the "sliding scale" for receiving funding. “In no way do we want our actions to create hardship for anyone and also in no way do we want our actions to come across as ‘we can’t rely on these folks, they keep changing their minds,’” Saleem Ghubril, Promise executive director, said.
