Just curious, as I know of some school districts such as the Kalamazoo City SD in MI with the Kalamazoo Promise, the Baldwin MI SD with the Baldwin Promise or the Say Yes to Education program in Syracuse, Buffalo and Greensboro/Guilford County NC, among others. Does anyone know of any other school districts that participate in a similar program?

Here is some information on the previously mentioned programs: Home - Say Yes to Education

Georgia StateWide, If you have a B average in Core Subjects, you get (mostly) free tuition at state colleges (Still have to pay the assorted other fees at the colleges) .

I think (there has been some changes lately) but Valedictorian with SAT/ACT over X and GPA over X get full + fees tuition @ state colleges.

Georgia's HOPE Scholarship program provides free or greatly reduced tuition to state colleges and universities for students who graduate with a B average or higher. It's pretty much the model for all such scholarship programs nationwide.

I don't thing HOPE comes anywhere near providing free tuition at State schools, and only pays $3200/year for private schools. Still a great program.
