Honors Program Scholarships

Awards range from $600 to $1000, and they are given to students who will be transferring to four year colleges or universities.
2. Honors Program Transfer Application Scholarship. If funding permits, students who are in the final year of their studies at CCC and who have been active participants in the Honors Program are eligible to apply for this scholarship. Awards are $225, and they are given to students to offset the cost of filling out admissions applications to four year colleges and universities.
3. Honors Program Book Scholarship. If funding permits, students who have completed at least one year of active participation in the Honors Program are eligible to apply in the summer for this scholarship. Awards are in the form of $300 Barnes and Noble Gift cards, and so the money can be used either for text books or to purchase books for free reading.
