All 2020 graduates – regardless of GPA or family income – have the opportunity to earn a last-dollar scholarship that will cover any gap between what a student’s state and federal financial aid cover and the cost of tuition at a Promise Partner college. Promise Scholars also have access to a Success Coach and exclusive transfer scholarships at Promise partner colleges and universities
