Our Purpose, Your Promise

Promise Pledge opened October 1, 2018! Pledge by February 8, 2019 to continue your education beyond high school and become eligible for scholarships and success coaching at Promise Partner colleges.

What is the Dallas County Promise?

Through the Dallas County Promise, participating colleges provide "last-dollar scholarships" to students who graduate from one of 43 Promise high schools with either a diploma or associate degree. The Promise scholarship covers the gap between need-based financial aid and the cost of tuition for up to a time limit or the completion of a degree per institution.

All Promise Partner colleges promise to support and challenge you as you make your dreams a reality. All Promise Scholars will have a success coach to be your “go-to” person as you navigate your college experience.

We all promise to continue to work hard to create more opportunities for all students like you to pursue education beyond high school.
