The Putnam Promise program is a partnership between Ivy Tech Community College Greencastle, the Putnam County Community Foundation and generous community members to help 2020 high school graduates get an affordable start on a degree.
The program also hopes to help families in the community impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Putnam Community Foundation has provided scholarship funds for students interested in applying to this program. Funds are limited, on a first-come, first-serve basis.
