CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - High school seniors have until March 1 to apply for the West Virginia PROMISE Scholarship program.

The state’s Higher Education Policy Commission office says qualifying high school graduates receive annual awards of up to $4,750 to cover the cost of tuition and mandatory fees at eligible West Virginia higher education institutions.

Since its inception, more than 35,000 West Virginia students have benefited from the program.

To qualify, students must achieve a cumulative grade point average of at least a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or the equivalent of a “B” average. Students also must earn at least a 22 ACT composite score or a 1020 combined SAT score by the June 2015 testing dates.
