NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — New Haven Promise and Quinnipiac University are teaming up for a new scholarship agreement.

Students who earn the New Haven Promise scholarship and enroll at QU will get at least $25,000 a year from the school every year as long as they meet academic standards.

They’ll also be provided with an on-campus work study job.

But they need that opportunity to make the way for them, and this scholarship is paving a great path for them to success.”
