Dallas County Promise is a transformational effort between school districts, colleges, universities, workforce, and communities to increase college completion. At the core, the promise is a scholarship from the Dallas County Community College District Foundation in partnership with matching university scholarships aligned to high-demand jobs.
Dallas County is committed to developing world-class talent that creates equitable outcomes for students, families, and communities.
College Promise Campaign is a national, non-partisan initiative to build broad public support for funding the first two years of higher education for hard-working students, starting in America’s community colleges. While this is a national movement, local communities and states are leading the way to create College Promise programs, which cover tuition and fees leading to a community college degree or occupational certificate.
Tennessee Promise program has the highest success of fully engaging high schools as partners to produce the best results at scale of any of the current 200 promise models across the country. Representatives from Dallas visited Tennessee on several occasions to learn about their Promise model and how to apply that to the Dallas County Promise program.
