Traditionally an event designated for San Luis Obispo County high school seniors, now invites all San Luis Obispo County high school students and families to our Virtual Promise Day Event set for Thursday, October 15, 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Students will have the opportunity to learn about Cuesta College's academic programs from faculty, talk with admissions and financial aid representatives, and discuss campus life with current students. Most importantly, attendees will learn about the Promise Scholarship, which guarantees two fee-free full years of college to all recently graduated high school students.
The 2020-21 Cuesta Promise Scholarship application opens October 1, 2020. The Cuesta Promise is the result of a private donation of more than $8 million to the Cuesta College Foundation from the Charles and Leeta Dovica Family Trust, who requested the funds be used for scholarships. The scholarship endowment, created in the fall of 2013, currently saves students an average of $1,400 in their first year at Cuesta College.
