About Us



Our Spring 2023 application for the Promise Scholars Program is now OPEN!  



The intention of the Promise Scholars Program is to accelerate your path toward achieving your educational goals, whether you hope to earn a certificate, an associate degree, or completion of general education requirements to successfully transfer to a four-year institution. The Program is more than a scholarship. All Promise Scholars are welcomed into a  supportive, engaged, and inclusive community – a home on campus. 


The Promise Scholar's Program benefits include:
  • Waived Enrollment and Student Fees for 2-3 years at Cañada College
  • Individualized Academic Support and Counseling
  • Priority Registration
  • Monthly Incentives of $50 gift cards that can be used towards gas or a campus meal plan
  • Textbook stipend each semester
  • Cohorted Classes 
Here at Cañada College, we are aiming to become a full model replication of CUNY’s Accelerated Study in Associate Programs (ASAP) which assists students in earning associate degrees within three years by providing a range of financial, academic, and personal supports.
