Columbus Promise Program

Ohio: Columbus City Council President Shannon Hardin is expanding the reach of the Columbus Promise program, which covers the cost of tuition for Columbus State Community College. The additional funding will open doors to higher education for more individuals, especially students of color, who did not have the opportunity before. The program equips them “with those tools, with those certificates, with those degrees that allow them to come back, stay in our community, and take the good jobs that are being created here in Columbus,” said Hardin.
