ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

information from South Seattle College

It was democracy in action at a Seattle City Council public hearing at city hall on Oct. 25 as South Seattle College students, faculty and leadership spoke to the council about the impact of our college's 13th Year Promise Scholarship, and encouraged passage of a proposal to expand the program to three more high schools.
Seattle City Councilmember Bruce Harrell has submitted a budget proposal that would expand the 13th Year Promise Scholarship to Cadditional high schools over 2017 and 2018 with city support.

Currently offered to all Rainier Beach, Chief Sealth and Cleveland high school graduating seniors, the 13th Year Promise Scholarship provides one year of tuition-free college at South along with support services. It has increased access to higher education for area youth, particularly those from underrepresented groups including first-generation college students, low-income students and students of color. The program began in 2008, and to this point has been funded by donations to the college’s foundation.
