The National CCAA annually offers the National CCAA Scholarship to college-bound high school seniors from various geographic regions attending one of the National CCAA member institutions in the fall. For fall 2020, the National CCAA will award 16 one-time $1,000 awards.

To be eligible for the National CCAA Scholarship:

  • Applicants must graduate in the spring (i.e., spring 2020 high school graduation for fall 2020 awards).
  • Recipients must be accepted to one or more National CCAA member institutions. Click here for a current list of member institutions, as of February 2, 2019.
  • Recipients must enroll at a National CCAA member institution beginning in fall 2020.

High school and college information will be verified for students receiving the scholarship awards. Award recipients give the National CCAA permission to use the recipient’s name and image for all public relations associated with the scholarship award.

Award recipients will be selected by random drawing. Two students will be chosen from each of the regions listed below:

Mid-Atlantic I: NJ, NY
Mid-Atlantic II: DC, DE, MD, PA
Midwest I: IA, KS, MN, ND, NE, SD, WI
Midwest II: IL, IN, MI, MO, OH, WV
New England: CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, VT
South: AL, AR, FL, GA, KY, LA, MS, NC, PR, SC, TN, TX, VA, VI
West: AK, AZ, CA, CO, HI, ID, MT, NM, NV, OK, OR, UT, WA, WY
International: Non-U.S.


The application for students entering college in fall 2020 will be posted here in late January/early February 2020, so check back. The application will only take a few minutes to complete and high school seniors graduating in spring 2020 and entering college in fall 2020 as first-year students are eligible to apply.

Applicants will only be contacted (via email first, then phone/text if provided) if they have been randomly selected as award winners. The award process begins in late March and runs until winners in each of the eight regions have been confirmed as enrolling at a CCAA member institution in Fall 2020, so the process may continue through the summer if needed.
