External Scholarships

for all students

External scholarships are comprised of funds that you apply for and receive from an outside or external source not affiliated with Columbia College Chicago. These scholarships can be from a source in your community, religious organization, professional organization, or even your high school. Take a look around, there are scholarships available.

If your external scholarship information is received, processed, and awarded by August 1, Columbia may even match your external scholarship with the Third-Party Scholarship Award.
