Our Opportunities

Welcome to Central Piedmont Community College Foundation’s online scholarship application portal. Completing the General Scholarship Application on this portal will allow you access to a number of Foundation scholarship opportunities at Central Piedmont. Most scholarships are awarded for the fall and spring semester and certain scholarships are also available for the summer semester. To be eligible, students must have a minimum 2.5 GPA and must be enrolled to earn a certificate, diploma or degree from Central Piedmont. The application cycle for academic year 2022-2023 opens February 1, 2022 and closes November 30, 2022. You must reapply each year.

Specific award period deadlines:
Summer 2022 application deadline – April 30, 2022
Fall 2022 & Spring 2023 priority application deadline – May 15, 2022
Fall 2022 & Spring 2023 regular application deadline – July 30, 2022
Spring 2023 only application deadline – November 30, 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.

Please visit the Recommended Opportunities page on your dashboard to view opportunities for which you may be eligible and corresponding eligibility requirements.

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 recipients will receive an award notification through their Central Piedmont student email account. Notifications will be emailed in early June 2022 for academic year 2022-2023 awards, October 2022 for spring 2023 only awards and late April 2023 for summer 2023 awards. Scholarship recipients MUST accept their award through the online portal within 10 days of being notified and complete a post-acceptance questionnaire within 15 days of acceptance. If the acceptance and questionnaire are not completed timely, the scholarship recipient will not receive the award.

Unless otherwise noted, scholarships provide a credit for tuition, tuition fees, and books with awards applied first to tuition and tuition fees for the specified term. Remaining funds may then be used for books in accordance with Central Piedmont’s policy on using financial aid for books and supplies (https://www.cpcc.edu/financial-aid/awards/books-and-supplies). Scholarship awards apply to credit courses only.

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.
