Additional Aid Resources

Last updated on Oct 27, 2022

In addition to the financial aid assistance available through CCA, the Office of Financial Aid encourages students to seek sources of funding that are outside of the college. Please see the list below.

Outside Scholarship Opportunities

Our office also suggests students pursue local scholarships from those organizations with which they are familiar. Our office attempts to keep the list of non-CCA scholarship opportunities current; however, scholarship information can change without notice. Contact the scholarship organization directly for the most up-to-date information.

Below are some outside scholarships we have been notified about listed in alphabetical order:






International Students

Please note: Students should never have to pay for grant or scholarship information. Contact the Office of Financial Aid with any questions about an organization or company that requests or requires payment in order to receive or apply for scholarships or grants.

Alternative Sources of Financial Assistance

Besides outside scholarship opportunities, students could potentially seek alternative sources or other types of financial assistance from our communities.
