To begin:

1. Use the “Sign In” button located on the top right of this page

2. Sign in using your CPP log-in credentials

3. Complete the General Scholarship Application. You can save your application at any time by clicking Save and Keep Editing at the bottom of the form. After you finish filling out the application, you can submit it by clicking Finish and Submit.

Note: Required fields are marked with an asterisk.

4. Once the General Scholarship Application is complete and submitted, the system will automatically match you to scholarships in which you meet the basic criteria. Meeting the criteria means you will be entered into the pool of applicants for a particular scholarship. It does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship.

5. Use the Recommended drop-down menu to review a list of recommended scholarships you should consider applying to. Recommended Scholarships are based on your student record and the responses provided on your General Scholarship Application. Typically, these scholarships have additional requirements you must submit. Be sure to read instructions carefully.

6. For questions regarding specific opportunities, reach out to the contact listed in the description.

You will be notified if you are selected to receive a scholarship by the awarding department/organization, and you will be informed of disbursement eligibility requirements you must maintain such as G.P.A, minimum enrollment, or thank-you letter requirements you must submit. Scholarship award amounts are contingent on funding availability. Please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions for additional information. For assistance with accessibility issues on the Bronco Scholarship Portal, email scholarships@cpp.edu.

Additional Tips:

  • Utilize on-campus resources such as the Learning Resource Center (LRC) to solicit feedback on essay prompts.
  • Some scholarship opportunities require letters of recommendation. You will be asked to provide the name and email address of person(s) you would like to complete the letter on your behalf. Connect with those individuals early and inform them of your intent to request the letter(s). You should also consider sharing additional information about yourself, or the scholarship opportunity (e.g., resume, URL to the opportunity).
