For The
Birmingham Promise



Our scholarships for Birmingham City Schools graduates cover tuition and mandatory fees at any two- or four-year Alabama public college or university after Pell grants and other financial aid. Some students may still need loans to cover expenses for things like housing and books, but Birmingham Promise can significantly reduce the costs of college and reduce barriers to a higher education.

Just as important as the financial support, each of our students is also assigned a success coach to help them stay in college and make the most of the experience. Regular sessions with your student success coach are a condition of the Birmingham Promise scholarship program.



There are no GPA requirements set by Birmingham Promise, although individual institutions have their own entrance rules that our students still must meet.
