Cincinnati State, CPS to unveil new grant program for low-income CPS grads that takes cost for tuition, books to $0
What: On Tuesday, February 21, Cincinnati State President Monica Posey and CPS Superintendent Mary Ronan will announce the new Be Great Grant program for low-income, Pell-eligible Cincinnati Public Schools graduates, which will cover any gaps between financial aid and the cost of tuition and books at Cincinnati State.
Two students from Withrow High School will also be at the unveiling—both are planning to attend Cincinnati State next year and are eligible for a Be Great Grant.
With more than half of young Cincinnatians age 5-18 living in poverty—a percentage that is even higher in many CPS schools—the new grants will make college possible for many CPS students who might not otherwise be able to pursue a degree.
When: Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 10:00 AM – 10:30 AM
Location: Cincinnati State College, 3520 Central Parkway, Cincinnati, OH 45223, in the Summit Restaurant on the 2nd Floor of ATLC Building.
Parking: Limited parking for media will be available on College Drive at the Summit Restaurant Valet Entrance outside of the ATLC building. Please call if you need directions.
