Community Foundation - Promise Scholarship Winners

Congratulations to the following Holland High and Holland Early College students for being awarded the CFHZA Promis Scholarship:

  • Thy Tran
  • Holly Byrd
  • Josephine Suarez (HEC)
  • Jackie Romero
  • Cristal Felix-Trejo 

The Promise Scholarship is a last-dollar scholarship. This means that after other grants and scholarships have been applied, the scholarship will cover the remaining cost of tuition, books, room, and board.

The Holland/Zeeland Promise began as a dream to allow our area’s youth to graduate college or technical school without crushing student debt. Promise candidates are nominated by their high school or Careerline Tech Center guidance counselors, or staff at Hope College’s Upward Bound, the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Holland or Latin Americans United for Progress. Selection is based on a range of factors including high financial need, the motivation to achieve a college or technical degree and proven academic success. Most Promise recipients are the first in their families to go to college.
