CBC Foundation Scholarship Application
The CBC Foundation scholarship application is currently closed. Our next application cycle will open on August 1, 2023.
Scholarship Program Information
Our community of generous donors make it possible to award over $1,000,000 in scholarships annually. A single scholarship application matches you to various scholarships offered by the CBC Foundation. We offer scholarships based on field of study, financial need, academic performance and more. Each scholarship has its own set of criteria, but most require a minimum 2.0 GPA. You do not have to be FAFSA or WASFA eligible in order to apply.
If you have questions related to your submitted scholarship application or our program in general please email%20us.
Student Emergency Fund
Columbia Basin College Foundation’s Emergency Need Fund is funded in partnership with STCU in order to assist students who are experiencing an unforeseen financial crisis that is creating a barrier to their student success. The fund provides small grants to students who are experiencing a one-time financial hardship that is unlikely to occur again.
We try to review applications as quickly as possible and make funding decisions within one week. If you need immediate assistance or would like to talk to someone regarding your application, please contact%20us.
Most of our scholarships require students to be enrolled in at least 10 credits and have a 2.0 GPA or higher. If you’re unsure if you qualify, please email%20us%20and we will answer any questions that you have.
