Apply for our Scholarship!

The Richmond Promise Scholarship is a $1,500 college scholarship, renewable for up to 4 years. Students may attend a 2-year or 4-year college, and/or pursue a Career Technical Education Certificate at any not-for-profit institution in the United States.


NOVEMBER 2023 UPDATE: The 2023-24 academic year scholarship application will tentatively open in January 2024 due to forthcoming changes with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and California Dream Act Application (CADAA). The 2024-25 FAFSA and CADAA applications will launch December 31, 2023, and our scholarship will mirror the same timeline. We highly encourage all families to create their Federal Student Aid ID account beforehand to get a head start with the financial aid process.
