$277,000 in CCC Foundation Scholarships Open October 31

Contra Costa College believes that paying for college shouldn’t be a barrier for you to achieve your educational goals. That’s why the CCC Foundation has scholarships for everyone!

This year’s scholarship application cycle will be no different, with CCC offering more than 67 different scholarship opportunities totaling $277,000 for continuing and transferring students. Through the generosity of the individual donors, local businesses, and community members, the Foundation is able to offer more and more scholarship dollars to our students each year!

Scholarships range from $1,000 – $5,000 each and all can be accessed through one on-line application starting November 1, 2022. Students will have until mid-February to complete an application, and will then learn about awards in April.

“It’s free money to help our students get an education, thanks to the many donors who support our Foundation,” shared Sara Marcellino, Executive Director of the CCC Foundation. “Our goal is to have 100% of CCC students take the hour and a half to complete the application, getting more students engaged with this important effort we run in partnership with CCC for our students.”

Don’t forget scholarship applications open October 31, so be sure to apply today! If you have any questions, reach out to Alfredo Cardona, CCC Scholarship Specialist, at
