Promising a Brighter Future

The Cerro Coso Promise is a scholarship intended for hard-working, dedicated students that deserve an education, regardless of financial or personal status. By meeting basic criteria, students may qualify for up to $1,000 per semester for 2 years to help with tuition, books, and fees. Award amounts may vary depending on funding availability and financial aid parameters.

From specialized counseling to help with creating a comprehensive education plan, the Promise is committed to making sure students participate in a variety of initiatives designed to help them meet their educational goals. Participants also receive priority registration, career advising, help with transferring, and other student support services to assist them in staying on track.

Please submit a Promise application for 2023-2024 academic year. Applications will be accepted until Friday, September 1, 2023 at 5:30pm. All Applications are on a first come, first served basis and will be assessed appropriately for all Promise requirements.
