As reported in the Baltimore Sun, Baltimore has been asked to submit a proposal for a program that could provide every high school graduate a college scholarship.
The national Say Yes to Education organization has chosen Baltimore to submit a proposal showing how local leaders would work together to help students socially, academically and financially to graduate from high school and enroll in college.
If chosen, Baltimore would join Syracuse and Buffalo, N.Y., in covering tuition for all students, regardless of income, to attend the state’s public universities. Students from low-income households would also be eligible to receive full scholarships to dozens of private colleges.
