Say Yes to Education Cleveland

A community united to ensure children have the opportunity – and the support – to earn a postsecondary credential and contribute to a thriving city center and a robust regional economy.

Cleveland joins Say Yes to Education


Say Yes Cleveland provides scholarships up to the value of tuition to all public universities, community colleges, and Pell-eligible certificate programs in Ohio – as well as over 115 private colleges and universities in Ohio and across the nation – to eligible students who live in Cleveland* and graduate from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District or partnering charter high school.

Support Services

A student’s success is the result of many academic, social-emotional, and health-and-wellness factors. To address the diverse range of supports needed by students, from pre-K through 12th grade, to succeed, Say Yes Cleveland is working to better identify and connect individual students to those services.

Why Say Yes Cleveland

The goals of the Say Yes are to increase education levels of Cleveland residents; boost and retain population in the City of Cleveland; improve college access for middle- and low-income families in Cleveland; and spur economic growth and expansion in Cleveland.
