Let us help reduce the cost of your education!

Last year, the CCS Foundation awarded scholarships to 241 students to cover the costs of tuition and books, as well as hundreds of smaller awards to help with testing costs, program fees and emergency needs.

Scholarships will open January 19, 2021!

Our 100+ scholarships will be open for applications from January 19-March 19, 2021. Students can apply through our scholarship portal by visiting our How to Apply page.

Students, don't forget:

  • Scholarships help you pay for school and do not need to be repaid
  • Scholarships aren't just about grades. Your work goals and financial situation matter too!
  • With so many scholarships, we have something for everyone

The first step to apply for scholarships is to complete our general scholarship application. The general scholarship application is now closed for this year.

Once completed, you’ll be entered in our general scholarship pool to be considered for those scholarships open to all CCS students. You’ll also be alerted to additional scholarship opportunities which you may qualify for based on the responses you provided. Many of these opportunities require additional information, but have fewer applicants because they have very specific criteria. We encourage you to take the time to apply for all scholarships for which you qualify to increase your chances of receiving an award.
