The Promise Scholarship is the result of a more than $8 million private donation to the Cuesta College Foundation. The scholarship endowment, created in the fall of 2013, pays for the per-unit cost of classes, health fees, Associated Students of Cuesta College fees, materials fees, Student Center fees, and the Student Rep fee.
