Scholarships

The CCC Foundation raises funds each year to provide up to $500,000 in scholarship awards to new and returning students. Students planning to attend CCC to pursue a degree or certificate can apply during the open application periods. To apply there is a requirement for the student to take at least six credits each term and maintain a 2.0 GPA or above. Last academic year one in three applicants received a scholarship!

There is just one simple electronic application to fill out. When the application is completed, the student will automatically be considered for any scholarships where they meet the criteria, based on the information provided.
