SCHOLARSHIPS
By completing the General Application, you will be considered for multiple COM Foundation scholarships for which you qualify. After completing the General Application, you can view other scholarships you may be eligible for by selecting “Recommended” from the Opportunities tab.
Students are required to complete the FAFSA to be eligible for a COM Foundation scholarship (with the exception of CHS and Dual Credit students), and may only receive one Foundation scholarship per semester.
Meeting the qualification criteria for a scholarship means that you will be entered into the pool of applicants for that particular scholarship. It does not guarantee that you will receive a scholarship.
For questions or concerns about scholarships, please e-mail Samantha Gathright at sgathright@com.edu.

Priority deadlines – Apply by the date listed to be considered for a scholarship for that term:
  • Fall – June 30th
  • Spring – November 30th
  • Summer – April 30th
