Scholarship Opportunities

The future is a student's wisest investment.

We invest in our students and recognize their academic achievement each year through our financial aid programs. Champlain awarded almost $20 million in College-funded scholarships based on academic strength and financial need for the 2013-2014 academic year. More than 85 percent of students received scholarship funds, which do not have to be repaid, to help pay their educational costs.

All applicants accepted into a Champlain degree program will automatically be considered for one of our merit-based scholarships, and those who complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be considered for need-based scholarships. For more information about Champlain's endowed scholarships, federal grant opportunities and state aid programs, visit Financial Aid.

Additionally, Champlain offers two scholarships to incoming first-year students. Please nominate your students for the Women in Technology scholarship and encourage any student entrepreneurs you know to apply for the Build Your Own Business (BYOBiz)® Scholarship when they submit their college application.
