Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Cal Poly Pomona Bronco Scholarship Portal!

The Cal Poly Pomona (CPP) General Scholarship Application for the 2021-2022 academic year will be available October 1, 2020 through March 2, 2021.

The scholarships listed below are CPP scholarships offered by donors, community organizations and departments throughout the university. Click on a scholarship’s name to learn more about that opportunity. There are various deadlines, and new opportunities will be added every week, so visit this portal regularly for new opportunities.

To apply, first complete the General Scholarship Application by clicking the “Sign In” button on this page. (You will have to sign in with your CPP student login information to begin.)

You can save your application at any time by clicking “Save and Keep Editing” at the bottom of the form.
Once completed, you can submit your application by clicking “Finish and Continue.” Please note that required fields are marked with an asterisk.

Once the General Scholarship Application is complete and submitted, the system will automatically match you to scholarships that you appear to qualify for. Being “automatically matched” means that you will be considered, but it does not guarantee that you will receive a scholarship.

After you complete the General Scholarship Application, we encourage you to go to the drop-down menu to find more opportunities, including:

- Recommended – These are open scholarships for which you appear to meet the basic criteria. Typically, these scholarships have additional questions or criteria that you must meet to apply.
- Ours – This lists all CPP scholarships.

If you are selected to receive a scholarship, the awarding department or organization will notify you and inform you of any specific requirements you will need to meet in order to receive the scholarship during the 2021/2022 academic year, such as maintaining a certain GPA, meeting a minimum enrollment or submitting a thank-you letter. Make sure to check your email for notifications.

We are stating the following, per the requirements of the Department of Education Federal Student Aid Handbook, Coded Memos ASA-2016-10 and ASA-2016-28: If a student receives an award that causes their total aid from all sources to exceed the Cost Of Attendance (COA), then adjustments must be made. To the extent possible, prior to adjusting grants or scholarships, the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will first reduce and/or replace unmet need, followed by loans and work-study. In general, unless an award is considered wages, it is considered “other financial assistance” and must be factored in.
