PROMISE Beyond Offers New Opportunities for PROMISE Scholars

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

West Virginia students who qualify as PROMISE Scholars can take advantage of a new scholarship program called PROMISE Beyond that aims to cover the full cost of tuition at Fairmont State University.

The scholarships awarded through this program would be a four-year commitment by the University, and students receiving these scholarships would be required to maintain a minimum GPA once enrolled at FSU.

“PROMISE scholars have identified themselves as top academic achievers, and Fairmont State has a campus prepared to help them meet their educational goals,” said Amie Fazalare, Director of Admissions and Recruitment. “Through PROMISE Beyond we hope to ease the financial burden and allow students to focus on their college experience.”     

FSU provides many opportunities for high achieving students, from first-class student services to participating in the Honors program to interacting with faculty who are respected experts in their fields.

“Fairmont State faculty are talented educators who are knowledgeable in their fields, and they are involved directly with their students. The primary purpose for faculty here is to teach, and they do it exceptionally well. Due to the size of our campus, students have an environment that enables strong learning relationships with faculty and provides special opportunities for engagement,” said Dr. Van Dempsey, Dean of School of Education, Health and Human Performance.

FSU is a student-centered institution of first choice among students who desire a flexible and relevant learning experience. The University provides a well-rounded education, enabling students to gain the knowledge and skills needed for self-fulfilling, responsible citizenship and employability in a rapidly changing global environment.
