Each January, our scholarship application opens for our 100+ scholarship opportunities. We also open a select number of scholarships again in August.  All CCS students, including international students, are able to apply. 

Scholarships for the 2024-2025 academic year will be open from August 15-September 5!

You can apply to several scholarship opportunities at once using our General Application. This application can also auto-match students to other scholarship opportunities. Many of those opportunities require additional information, and we encourage you to apply for every scholarship you’re eligible for to increase your chances of an award!  Students who apply in January can be notified they are receiving a scholarship for the following academic year as early as May. Students who apply in August can be notified they are receiving a scholarship to be disbursed immediately as early as September. 

Please note: you must be an admitted student to apply.
