Supporting Siskiyou and Modoc County Students - Investing in the Future!
The College of the Siskiyous Promise is designed to remove the economic barriers to education. The "Promise" is graduating seniors from Siskiyou and Modoc County high schools (who are also California residents) will have their enrollment fees ($46/unit cost of classes, health fee, student rep fee, and student center fees) fully funded during their first full academic year (consecutive fall and spring semesters after high school graduation) of attendance at College of the Siskiyous, crediting any applicable financial assistance. Promise students will also receive a book voucher for use in the Campus Bookstore during the fall ($200) and spring ($200) semesters. Promise students must enroll as a full-time student (at least 12, but recommend 15 units) to be eligible for funding.
The Siskiyou Promise Scholarship is limited to two full, regular academic years (fall and spring semesters only) which excludes winter intersession and summer session.

The Siskiyou Promise Scholarship Program is funded by a variety of funding sources including the College of the Siskiyous Foundation and State categorical programs.
Quality education depends on fiscal stability, well-maintained facilities and equipment, up-to-date technology, and a faculty and staff that are current with new and innovative advances in their fields. Since its inception, the Foundation has worked to assist the Board of Trustees and College staff to maintain its standard of excellence.
Support for the Foundation can be in the form of cash, commitments, life insurance, wills, or transfer of investments and real property. Other giving arrangements include bequests (wills), trust funds, and endowments, which are invested for long-term growth and ongoing income to help our students reach their educational goals. All gifts to the COS Foundation are tax deductible, and subject to current tax accounting limitations. Prospective donors are encouraged to consult a qualified tax consultant for more detailed information. Contributions of any size are enthusiastically welcomed and greatly appreciated - and supporting the COS Foundation is a great way to invest in the future of our students. Please contact us if you have any questions about the Foundation.
