CJ Scholarships

Lighten your load

We don’t want you to worry about how you’re going to pay for college and neither do our scholarship donors and alumni. Our department is grateful to the generous donors who have contributed funding to the following scholarships for our students. You’ll have a lot of options while applying for one (or multiple) of our 30 scholarships. Some scholarships are only available for fall or spring and some require you to have financial need, but all of them have individual donors – most are CJ grads – who set the criteria.
