Scholarships @ CCSU 

General Information Regarding CCSU Scholarships

Central Connecticut State University annually awards over $3 million in scholarships funded by public scholarship programs and as well as private donations made to the CCSU Foundation, Inc.  Scholarships are intended to assist students with the cost of attendance, as well as recognize academic performance, leadership qualities, University/community service and campus/community engagement.  A growing number of scholarships are offered by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions to incoming first-year and transfer students; many of these scholarships are renewable contingent upon the recipient continuing to meet enrollment and academic achievement criteria.  In some cases, particularly those in which demonstrated financial need is part of the criteria, a FAFSA form must be filed with the CCSU Financial Aid Office.

In addition to scholarships offered to undergraduate students at the time of admission, the University offers a wide range of endowed, merit-based scholarships on a competitive basis.  First-year, transfer, and continuing students, including graduate students are informed when the online scholarship application process, hosted by Academic Works, opens each year. The Academic Works system helps CCSU students identify those University scholarship programs which most closely match their academic interests and for which they meet credit-hour and/or grade point average (GPA) requirements. Additionally, through the Academic Works portal, students are able to apply for a host of other scholarships not directly linked to an academic major. The Academic Works scholarship competition for 2018-2019 scholarship awards will open in mid-November 2017 and students will receive notification of awards early in the Spring 2018 semester.
