Our Opportunities

Welcome to the online scholarship application portal for Central Piedmont Community College Foundation. Completing applications on this portal will allow you access to a number of Central Piedmont Foundation scholarship opportunities. Most scholarships are awarded for the fall and spring semester, and certain scholarships are also available for the summer semester.

The application cycle for academic year 2022-2023 opens February 1, 2022 and closes July 31, 2022. You must reapply each year.

Specific award period deadlines:
Summer 2022 application deadline – April 1, 2022
Fall 2022 & Spring 2023 priority application deadline – May 15, 2022
Fall 2022 & Spring 2023 regular application deadline – July 31, 2022
Spring 2023 only application deadline – August 19, 2022

Applicants must have a Central Piedmont student ID number to apply for a Foundation scholarship. If you are a new student or do not have a student ID number, you must first apply for admission at Central Piedmont prior to starting your scholarship application. The scholarship portal aligns with the college’s single sign-on system using your Central Piedmont username and password. Your application is active from the moment you start until all opportunities close at the end of the cycle and can be updated throughout that time.

You must complete the General Scholarship Application to be considered for a Foundation Scholarship. You will automatically be considered for all auto-match opportunities based on your submitted application. Certain opportunities require supplemental information (i.e. transcripts, essays, letter of recommendation, etc.) and will show an “apply” action item. Please click on the name of the opportunity to show the required supplemental information that will have to be provided to submit your application. Incomplete applications and applications that have not been submitted will not be considered for a scholarship.

Scholarship awards are subject to the availability of funds each year and annual award amounts may vary. Central Piedmont does not discriminate based on any characteristic protected by law in its programs and activities.
