The Town of Queen Creek and Chandler-Gilbert Community College (CGCC) recently launched the QC College Promise program, a commitment from the town to help eligible high school students attend the local community college.
“As a town, we know the value of education and the impact it has on our community,” said Queen Creek Mayor Julia Wheatley. “As a council, we are pleased to offer this program to students and to welcome the next generation of community college learners. Thank to Chandler-Gilbert Community College for the partnership and to the Queen Creek Chamber of Commerce for their assistance promoting this program to our business community."
The QC Promise program is partially funded by a financial promise from the Town of Queen Creek, with additional support provided through business sponsors.
Eligible Queen Creek students can use this tuition assistance to help launch a career—or transfer on to a university.
The QC Promise program is a last dollar program intended to fill the gap in funding after financial aid and scholarships. The program is open to Queen Creek residents who meet the following eligibility:
- High school graduate (with a 2.0 GPA).
- Must start at CGCC within two years of high school graduation.
- Maintain a 2.5 GPA while attending CGCC.
- Demonstrate financial need and complete the FAFSA.
Applications for the fall 2023 semester will open March 1 and go through April 30. Scholarships will be awarded beginning June 1. For more information, email email@example.com.
