Scholarships are a smart way to pay for your college education. They are funds used to pay for higher education that do not have to be repaid to the provider. Scholarships may be awarded based on any number of criteria including academics, achievements, hobbies, talents, affiliations with various groups, or career aspirations.

Institutional Scholarships

Institutional scholarships and grants are a great way to help finance your education. Provided on a first-come, first-served basis, institutional scholarships and grants target specific populations of students who are attending CCA.


In addition to all scholarship opportunities that CCA offers, we encourage students to seek outside scholarship opportunities. External scholarships are opportunities that are not directly associated with CCA.
