With budget cuts looming around the state, PROMISE officials are considering raising the state-funded scholarship's standards, but not for a while.

PROMISE Director Robert Morgenstern assured the PROMISE Board of Control today the program isn't in trouble. He says a promise has been made and the promise will be kept.

Board members said that any changes would not happen this year or even next year.

PROMISE pays the college tuition of every West Virginia high school student with a 3.0 grade point average and a 21 on the A-C-T college admission exam.

The board did postpone further discussion on allowing students to use the scholarship at out-of-state universities that provide programs unavailable in West Virginia.
