Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Trinidad State College Scholarship Application Website!

With your answers to just a few questions, your General Application allows you to be considered for a variety of scholarships. Once you’ve completed the General Application, you may be asked to answer a few additional questions for specific opportunities.

PLEASE NOTE: The system will identify you from the information you provide in your General Application and match you to potential opportunities. Scholarships that you are matched to automatically will appear with “No Further Action Required” listed under the “Action” column – this means answers to additional questions were not required for consideration.

Please review the information below to get started —

NEW TSC STUDENTS ONLY: Any student who does not have a CCCS email address, i.e. (student@cccs.edu) or has never taken a class at TSC or at any Colorado Community College System (CCCS) School in any form, including but not limited to: online, concurrent and/or ASCENT, follow the instructions below:

  • Enter your personal email address. This must be the same personal email address that you used on your TSC admission application.
  • Create a unique password.

Please note: Once you receive a CCCS email, you will no longer use your personal email, just start using your student@cccs.edu email and your current password.

CONTINUING STUDENTS ONLY: Any student who already has a CCCS student email (student@cccs.edu), follow the instructions below:

  • Enter in your student@cccs.edu email address
  • Create a unique password

If you have any questions, please email us at Foundation.Scholarships@trinidadstate.edu.

Below you will find a listing of the many scholarships available to students with a short description about the scholarship qualifications. No need to apply for each one, our short common General Application automatically matches you to the potential opportunities.
