Institutional Scholarships

CNCC offers a wide range of financial aid consisting of various Federal, State, and Institutional programs. CNCC requires students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and meet all other designated requirements to be considered for all of the following need-based aid programs. Where the aid program has the word “Colorado” in the title, a student must be a resident of Colorado. These funds are provided by the General Assembly of the State of Colorado.
