Cleveland State Community College Scholarship Opportunities

In order to apply for scholarships with Cleveland State Community College, you need to first be accepted as a student through the Admissions Office. Your CougarNet username and password is required to login and submit a scholarship application. However, you are welcome to explore our scholarship opportunities by using the search option below.

Completion of the General Application is the only requirement for many of the scholarships in our system. These will be auto-matched to candidates that meet the requirements. Some scholarship opportunities require candidates to answer additional questions to complete the application process. If you see an opportunity you are interested in, click “Apply Now” and answer the supplemental questions. If a scholarship does not display an “Apply Now” button, there is currently no application available.
Though all scholarships have a closing date, many are rolling awards and offers are made periodically leading up to the semester. You may be offered a scholarship before the close date so we can get aid packages in order.
Students will be notified via their CougarNet email if they are selected to receive a scholarship.

If you have any questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office via email at or by calling 423-473-2310.
