Alumni scholarships are made available to CCM students each year through the contributions of alumni. The selection of recipients is handled through the CCM Foundation and the CCM Financial Aid Office. The amount of the award is $500 for full-time and $250 for part-time students. (Some awards are renewable and can be worth up to $2,000.) The main priority candidates for these awards are CHILDREN and GRANDCHILDREN of ALUMNI and will be considered first. However, returning alumni and CCM students involved in the Student Alumni Association are also eligible to apply. The award is based primarily on scholastic achievement and community service/activities, as well as other factors.
