Sponsor a Promise Student

We are excited to announce a new membership option for the President’s Circle in 2019! Our donors will have an opportunity to directly support the Foundation’s newest scholarship initiative, the Cerro Coso Promise. The 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 after financial aid and other scholarships are applied.

Donors whom wish to join the President’s Circle can now choose the “Sponsor a Promise Student” membership option, and the $4,000 donation will fully fund a Promise student for two years of full-time education. Promise student sponsors will receive special recognition from the Foundation throughout the year for their commitment to affordable, quality higher education.
