Students graduating from the Santa Ana Unified School District in California will receive free tuition in their first year at Santa Ana College.
The program will start this fall, and full-time students will be able to save as much as $1,104 for the year. Funding for the program will come from the Santa Ana College Foundation, with additional funding support from the State of California's Award for Innovation in Higher Education and Santa Ana College's Centennial Scholarship Campaign.
"This new level of support brings honor to the academic goals of our amazing students and will bring us ever closer to achieving a college degree in every home in Santa Ana," said Erlinda Martinez, president of the college, in a news release.
