HIGH POINT -- Five students are getting full tuition scholarships to High Point University through the ‘Say Yes Guilford’ program.
- Last year, the program had to change after burning through too much money.
- Limiting awards for applicants whose parents earn more than $100,000.
- Deadline for students to choose their school is June 15.
It's the opporunity families dreamed of when the scholarship program launched in Guilford County.
Last year, the program had to make changes because it burned through too much money in its first year.
The board says limiting awards for public university applicants whose parents earn more than $100,000 makes it more sustainable.
"We've had a full year of the new model in effect and, as a result, there are no changes for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year for the scholarship," said Warche Downing, ‘Say Yes Guilford’s’ director of postsecondary access.
‘Say Yes Guilford's’ deadline for students to choose their school is June 15.
