Siskiyou Promise supports Siskiyou County students

In 2014 and 2015 approximately 100 students came to COS from Siskiyou County High Schools; roughly half of those students attend College of the Siskiyous free as they receive the Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOGW) and/or also receive Pell Grants and other awards. In November 2015, the College of the Siskiyous administration proposed the creation of the Siskiyou Promise Scholarship Award for Siskiyou County high school graduates as a way to remove financial barriers and provide students a way to continue their education with fewer costs.

Beginning in the fall of 2016, Siskiyou County High School Class of 2016 graduates will be able to attend COS tuition free for their first year (2016/2017) through the newly developed Siskiyou Promise Scholarship program. (more…)
