The University of St. Joseph in West Hartford is offering four-year housing scholarships to Hartford Promise students.

Through a new partnership, eligible Hartford graduates will receive four-year housing scholarships to the University of St. Joseph in West Hartford.

The university has partnered with Hartford Promise, a newly formed nonprofit promoting the financial and academic success of Hartford's college-bound students. Hartford Promise will award scholarships of up to $20,000 to eligible Hartford students attending an accredited four-year college or university, and up to $5,000 to those attending two-year institutions.

St. Joseph will supplement the program by offering students a housing scholarship. The scholarship will cover the full cost of on-campus housing for four years, provided students retain their Hartford Promise eligibility.

Living on campus, studies have shown, helps boost students' academic performance. The University of St. Joseph will start housing Hartford Promise students in fall 2016.
