Dallas County Promise





    What is the Dallas County Promise?

    Through the Dallas County Promise participating colleges provide "last-dollar scholarships" to students who graduate from one of the 57 Promise high schools with a high school diploma or associate's degree. The Promise scholarship covers the gap between need-based financial aid and the cost of tuition for a time limit or the completion of a degree per institution.
