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. The application cycle for academic year 2019-2020 opens February 6, 2019 and closes September 30, 2019.

Specific award period deadlines:
Fall 2019 & spring 2020 priority application deadline – May 15, 2019
Fall 2019 & spring 2020 regular application deadline – July 30, 2019
Spring 2020 only application deadline – September 30, 2019
Summer 2020 application deadline – April 15, 2020

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 2019 for academic year 2019-2020 awards, October 2019 for spring 2020 only awards and late April 2020 for summer 2020 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, fees, and books with awards applied first to tuition and fees. 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.
