Butte College Promise Scholarship 

Invest In Our Students

The Butte College Promise Scholarship Endowment needs your support to help first-time, full-time students - of any age - earn a certificate, degree, and/or transfer to a four-year university by offering scholarships for their tuition and fees for up to two years. 

Currently, the Promise Scholarship is only partially funded through state funding, and a generous donation from the Grossman Family of $1 million—however, more funding is needed to sustain the program. The Butte College Foundation is seeking to raise $2.5 million to support the Promise Scholarship Endowment and have it sustainable for our students for years to come.
