The Alumni Association administers a scholarship program which is separate from the CCU scholarship program. Applications are available online in the beginning of the second semester of each school year and must be completed along with the reference questionnaires by March 28. Scholarships are available to all CCU students and are awarded based on Christian character, academic merit, intended area of ministry, and financial need. The Alumni Scholarship recipients are announced in May. Scholarship money comes from special gifts from alumni, friends of CCU, classes, and the interest earned from investments.
