Mayor O'Leary and WPS Announce Waterbury Scholarship Program

In collaboration with Mayor Neil M. O'Leary, Waterbury Public Schools is pleased to announce plans for a Waterbury Promise Scholarship Program. Beginning with the class of 2024 (current freshmen), Waterbury Promise will provide tuition assistance to high school students who wish to continue their post-secondary education. Modeled after the Hartford and New Haven Promise Programs, the scholarship program is tailored to individual community needs. While the eligibility criteria for the program is still being defined, the scholarship will require students to meet a defined GPA as well as attendance and residency requirements.
