Rising Star provides qualified high school graduates with academic support services and up to $4,000 for tuition and books. The DCCCD Foundation created the Rising Star Program because we believe everyone should have a chance to realize the American dream. We also believe that a college education through DCCCD is an excellent first step toward achieving that goal. There is a Rising Star office at each of the seven DCCCD colleges.
Here at Eastfield, we strive to provide excellence in teaching and learning and our Rising Star staff work diligently to mirror that same excellence. We provide one-on-one academic advising and degree planning, RS Club activities, and various leadership learning opportunities. As an Eastfield Rising Star student, you are guided along on your academic journey with compassion and understanding. We also have the Rising Star Club which strives to engage RS students in campus activities, fostering an environment of educational excellence and community service.
