UPDATE: March 30 is new deadline to submit Fall 2018 PROMISE Scholarship applications

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - The WV Higher Education Policy Commission has extended the application deadline for Fall 2018 PROMISE scholarships to Friday, March 30, 2018.

Some students told the WV HEPC they couldn't complete their PROMISE applications by the original deadline of March 1, due to the statewide teacher work stoppage that ran from Feb. 22 to March 6.

West Virginia lawmakers and Gov. Jim Justice had recently asked the Commission to extend the deadline to allow time for students to get help from school counselors and teachers to complete their PROMISE Scholarship applications.
