Scholarships for Graduate Students
During the Fall of their first academic year, recently admitted graduate students will receive an e-mail from Scholarships@ccsu.edu when the competition for merit-based scholarships for the following academic year is about to open. The application period begins annually in mid-November and closes in late January. This application period is the single time each year when all students can apply for merit-based scholarships for the following academic year. During this application period, students may apply to more than 300 scholarship funds according to the criteria for each scholarship program. Once the application period closes, applicants are screened and all complete applications are distributed to scholarship subcommittees for review. Upon completion of the review process, scholarship subcommittees submit recommendations the University Scholarship Committee, which reviews all nominations. Approved scholarships are submitted to the Financial Aid Office for posting to individual student accounts for the academic year for which the scholarship award is made.
