ROCKFORD PROMISE

What if we could promise every graduate of Rockford Public School District 205 the encouragement, mentorship and financial support necessary to earn a college degree?

Every student would have a path to post-secondary education.

Potential residents would enthusiastically choose our community because of the opportunities for their kids.

Businesses would want to locate here because of the availability of a talented workforce.

That’s the vision of Rockford Promise, a non-profit 501(c)(3) location-based scholarship program modeled after promise programs around the nation.

Thank you to Northern Illinois University for their warm hospitality to incoming 2022 Rockford Promise Scholars! Students and families toured campus, heard advice from current students, learned additional admissions and financial aid tips, ate pizza and went bowling. It was a great opportunity for students to get acquainted with their future campus! ... See MoreSee Less
