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 after financial aid and other scholarships are applied.
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.
The Promise will effectively reduce financial barriers to allow students to focus on completing their educational goals in an affordable and timely manner. This merit-based scholarship is unique in its support for students regardless of their financial situation.
"The Cerro Coso Promise is a pledge to prepare students for the 21st century workforce and the pursuit of the American Dream without the added burden of unmanageable college debt. It's a sustainable solution to college affordability. The Cerro Coso Promise is a commitment to the future." –President Jill Board
