Promise Profile: Oakland Promise

To fill financial gaps and minimize financial barriers for Oakland students, we will provide need-based college scholarships to all qualifying students from low-income backgrounds. Students at 2-year and technical colleges will receive up to $1,000 per year while students at 4-year colleges will receive up to $4,000 per year. We will roll out school by school, contingent on funding. Additionally, partnerships with local colleges, nonprofits, and scholarship providers will generate additional support to ensure students graduate ready for success in a career of their choice. The above information is taken from the Program’s website.
