Application-Based Scholarship Frequently Asked Questions:
What are the Application-Based Scholarships?
Who can apply?
Since the deadline to apply is March 1st, a student would need to be accepted to CCU and receive access to Webadvisor prior to that date in order to apply.
How do I know which Application-Based Scholarships are available?
How do I apply for Application-Based Scholarships?
Some scholarships require ‘additional requirements’ such as an essay or documentation. Students should follow the instructions on how to successfully submit any ‘additional requirements’ by the March 1st deadline.
How do I know which Application-Based Scholarships I’ve applied for?
What is the value of each Application-Based Scholarship?
When will I be notified if I have been awarded a Scholarship?
Can I receive multiple Application-Based Scholarships?
Yes, there is not a limit to the number of application-based scholarships a student may receive, provided the amount awarded does not exceed the student’s cost of attendance.
Am I required to enroll full time to receive a scholarship?
Generally yes; with the exception to some of the application-based scholarships, all scholarships require full time enrollment (at least 12 credit hours) each semester.
If I meet the requirements, will I be guaranteed a scholarship?
Unfortunately no; each year there are a limited number of awards that are able to be made for each application-based scholarship based on the amount of funding available. More often than not the number of applicants who meet the requirements is greater than the number of awards that are able to be made; therefore the opportunity to award every student who meets the requirements is just not possible.
What are my chances for receiving a scholarship?
This is difficult to answer as it depends on the scholarship, and the number of eligible applicants. Our best advice is to be sure that your application is complete by the March 1st deadline, especially submission of any ‘additional requirements’. Incomplete applications are not able to be considered, and each year there are numerous applicants who do not submit the required essay etc. that is needed to be considered for the award.
