The seventy-one students who are participating in the Dabney Promise Program at Dabney S. Lancaster Community College this academic year recently gathered on the Clifton Forge campus for orientation prior to the beginning of the fall semester. The Dabney Promise Program is a need-based program that provides a tertiary level of financial support – following scholarships and Financial Aid – to “fill the gap” of students’ financial need to attend DSLCC. Should students’ scholarships and financial aid not be enough to cover tuition and books, the Dabney Promise Program will cover the remaining tuition (up to 15 credits per semester) and may provide a book stipend of up to $750 per semester. In return, students must maintain a 2.25 GPA, attend a mandatory orientation session and donor recognition reception, and complete 8 hours of community service. For more information about Dabney Promise or to make a donation, please contact DSLCC Educational Foundation Director Rachael Thompson at (540) 863-2837 or via email at email@example.com.
