About the Class of 2022 Oakland Promise Scholarship Program: 


The Oakland Promise Scholarship is awarded to graduating high school seniors who plan to attend a postsecondary institution or education program -- such as a four-year college, two-year community college, or CTE program -- right after high school. Students awarded the Oakland Promise scholarship receive scholarship funds (ranging from $2,000 to $4,000, and a limited number of scholarships at $8,000 and $16,000 levels). In addition to our scholarships, we offer mentoring, peer-advising, networking opportunities, and other persistence support and services to achieve college success. Our Oakland Promise scholarship is open to Oakland public and charter high school seniors who meet our eligibility requirements.
