Quick Links



Scholarships can be an excellent way to help pay for college because scholarship award dollars do not need to be repaid. These awards are mainly intended to be used towards tuition and fee expenses and, on occasion, extend to cover living expenses associated with attending college.

Columbia College Chicago is very proud to offer a variety of scholarships for both undergraduate and graduate students. Each scholarship has it's own criteria and application guidelines. Please review each individual scholarship carefully.

To help guide you through the scholarship process, Columbia has created a Scholarship Finder which enables students to enter his/her profile to see which Columbia College scholarship he/she may qualify for in the upcoming year.
