Many organizations contact CCA each year, seeking qualified scholarship applicants. The following opportunities are open to any student who qualifies and wishes to apply.
Please note: The Community College of Aurora has no affiliation with the following opportunities aside from making them visible to our students. As such, we are unable to verify or control how these applications are processed, or if the information provided about the opportunity is regularly updated by the parties offering the scholarship.

BE AWARE OF SCHOLARSHIP SCAMS!While searching, and applying for a Private Scholarship, please remember that you should never have to pay a fee, or provide personal information (i.e.SSN, Bank Account/Credit card info). Visit for some additional information on safe scholarship searching. If you come across anything you are uncertain about, the Financial Aid Office would be happy to review the opportunity with you before you apply.
