Promise Scholar Day

Hartford Promise is more than a Scholarship.  Our Integrated College Success Model includes Reaching Forward where we make sure that every Scholar is KNOWN and provided the transitional support and services that give students the best opportunity to excel in their post-secondary goals.

Every August, Promise Scholar Day lays the foundation for student engagement for our new class of Scholars in the Hartford Promise community.  We want Scholars to see us as a resource to answer questions, connect them to campus support services, a platform for discussion, and as someone they can count on.


With workshops, discussion groups, and a scavenger hunt that sends Scholars around the host college’s campus, Promise Scholar Day helps our Scholars create important and lasting peer to peer and peer to staff relationships and launches them into college with more confidence and preparedness.   We want them to know that they can do this!  We are here to help them succeed.


Promise Scholar Day 2018 is on August 14 at University of Saint Joseph
