HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The University of Connecticut has announced plans to award an additional $5,000 annually to students from Hartford public schools who meet certain academic and attendance goals.

The initiative is similar to a program the school announced for New Haven students last month.

The money will go to incoming UConn students who are already receiving $5,000 annual scholarships as part of the in the Hartford Promise program.

That program is for students who have been enrolled in Hartford Public Schools since at least 9th grade, will graduate with a cumulative 3.0 grade point average and have good attendance.

About 150 college-bound seniors are on track to become Hartford Promise’s first scholars in the fall.
