Foundation Scholarships

Apply for a CBC Foundation Scholarship

CBC offers scholarships to more than 600 students through the CBC Foundation. A single scholarship application allows you to apply for all different scholarships offered by the Foundation. We offer scholarships based on field of study, financial need, academic performance and more. Most scholarships range from $1,000 to $2,500.

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.

The 2021 to 2022 Scholarship application will open January 1, 2021 and closes February 28, 2021. Please email%20us if you have questions on a current application or the upcoming cycle.
