College Scholarships Awarded at CSSSA
These scholarships are awarded at the end of the summer session and all CSSSA participants are evaluated. The selection is made by CSSSA faculty, department chairs, and the Director. There is no application or additional paperwork needed.
College Scholarships Awarded by College Partners
For the college scholarships awarded by our college partners, there are a couple of steps involved.
- You need to apply to the college or university through the normal application process.
- You will need to notify the office of admission's CSSSA coordinator that you are a CSSSA alumni. A CSSSA coordinator is an admissions officer at the college or university that works with all CSSSA applicants. See the individual college partner pages for more information.
- You will need to indicate on your application that you participated in CSSSA.
- If you are accepted to the college, you will automatically be considered for the additional CSSSA scholarship.
