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.

Recommended Scholarships are based on your student record and the responses provided on your General Scholarship Application.

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).
