Promise Scholars Program
Our application is closed for the 2019/2020 academic year. The application will reopen for the 2020/2021 school year in the spring.
The Promise Scholars Program provides incoming full-time students financial and academic support for two years. The program includes text book assistance, food or transportation vouchers, dedicated counseling and career support. The program is open to first-time college students who can commit to attending Cañada College full-time (12 units minimum per semester, with 15 units highly encouraged).
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. We expect all students in the program to regularly participate in counseling, career development, and utilize the program’s academic resources.
