What Makes this Opportunity Unique?
One of the most common demoralizers in the scholarship application process is realizing that hundreds, thousands, possibly tens of thousands of other students are applying to the same scholarship. A unique thing about the CTCL scholarship is that its requirements naturally limit the applicant pool to a much more realistic number. While only 2-3 scholarships are available each year, only students planning on enrolling in a CTCL member institution will be competing for the scholarship.
When is the application due?
Application Opens: Early Spring 2022 (TBD)
Application Deadline: Late Spring 2022 (TBD)
While the open and close dates on the CTCL Scholarship can vary from year to year, the scholarship application generally opens in the early spring (~February) and closes in the late spring (~April).
