Dollar for dollar up to $100,000, Travelers is matching all new and increased donations to our Promise Scholar Scholarship Fund and our Promise Scholar Emergency Fund, now through September 30, 2020. That means that your donation goes TWICE AS FAR as usual, essentially doubling the value of your donation.
Hartford Promise is a large-scale College Scholarship Fund and College Success Program that provides Hartford students the financial resources, support services, and key relationships that lead to college success. Our ambitious goals are to transform the lives of Hartford students and transform the city of Hartford. The Hartford Promise Scholarship provides qualifying students up to $20,000 in scholarship funds. To become a Promise Scholar students must reside in Hartford and attend a Hartford Public High School, have a 93% or better attendance and have a 3.0 GPA or better during high school.
Travelers is a Founding Champion of Hartford Promise and its largest corporate funder. Travelers was integral to creating and developing the Hartford Promise Integrated College Success Model designed to increase the likelihood of college success for Hartford youth.
“Without Hartford Promise, many of these students would not have been able to consider college as an option…Hartford Promise eliminates the financial barriers faced by so many students today, and it will transform the lives of our students and our city… it’s an investment in Hartford’s future.”
