• Outside Scholarships

    Recommended Scholarship Search Engines

    Colorado Christian University recognizes that paying for a college education can often be challenging. We strongly recommend that all of our students, including non-traditional and graduate students, search for outside scholarships. The following is a list of free scholarship search engines that we recommend. A profile is required with each search engine in order to help personalize your search.

    1. Please remember that while we can recommend these search engines, the integrity of the sources offering scholarships cannot be guaranteed. You may wish to conduct additional research on a specific source.
    2. There are other scholarship search engines from which you may find additional outside scholarships. This is not a comprehensive listing of resources.
    3. Please keep in mind that if a scholarship search engine requests money to find your scholarship listings, it is probably not a good site to use. Although some sources are legitimate, the rule of thumb is: any site requesting money to find money is probably a scam!!
