    Scholarship and Grants

    • CCU Scholarships and Grants - CCU awards several renewable, merit scholarships based on academic achievement and excellence to both First-time Freshmen and Transfer Students. CCU offers athletic, music, scripture-memory, and other institutional aid for incoming students. In addition, CCU also offers grants, which are given solely based on financial need. The benefit of both scholarships and grants is that this is free money. CCU scholarships and grants help defer costs for you and is money that you never have to pay back.

    • Dual Credit, Legacy, and Partner Scholarships - The Dual Credit Scholarship is an initiative between Colorado Christian University and select public high schools. The Legacy Scholarship is designed to assist children and/or siblings of CCU alumni and current students to continue the CCU tradition. In addition, CCU has partnered with dozens of Christian high schools, and organizations, churches and parachurch ministries to provide financial opportunities for prospective students associated with these organizations to pursue their education at CCU.

    • Federal Grants - The federal government awards various types of grants to undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need and meet other criteria. Unlike loans, they do not have to be paid back. In all cases, the student must submit the FAFSA to help determine eligibility.

    • State Grants - Students at Colorado Christian University may be eligible to receive Colorado’s College Opportunity Fund (COF) stipends to offset their cost of attendance. COF stipends are paid to eligible undergraduate students by the State of Colorado when they attend a participating institution of higher education. Students may also be eligible to receive a Colorado State Opportunity Grant, a need-based grant awarded to Colorado residents subject to annual state funding availability.

    • Outside Scholarships and Resources - 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 and learn about other financial aid resources.
