SCHOLARSHIPS

We welcome you to the Community College of Denver.

Scholarships are a great way to help pay for college. At CCD, you can fill out just one application to be considered for many different scholarships. Keep in mind that some scholarships require additional documents.

Receiving a scholarship may impact your financial aid, view Scholarship FAQs

Here are just a few of the many ways that you can qualify for a scholarship:

  • GPA
  • Race or Ethnicity
  • Talent (like music or performance)
  • Classes You are Taking
  • Veteran Status
  • Financial Need   
  • Major
  • Workplace
  • Affiliation with a Non-profit Organization

THE PRIORITY DEADLINE TO APPLY FOR CCD SCHOLARSHIPS IS APRIL 15 each year, for the upcoming fall semester. 

All students should apply for a scholarship for the 2014-2015 academic year, even if they received a scholarship for the 2013-2014 academic year. Students must re-apply for scholarships every academic year. The General Scholarship Application will remain on a student's file for one academic year only.

Preference will be given to applications submitted by the April 15 priority deadline. You may apply after this date, however scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

Every scholarship has its own specific qualifications, but all CCD scholarships require that students:

  • Meet Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements

  • Have not earned a bachelor's degree (unless applying for Health Science or Displaced Aurarian)
