How do students receive scholarship consideration?

Admitted, prospective and current students can apply for all CCC scholarships, including Endowment Foundation Scholarships and Institutional Scholarships, by completing the General Application within the Academic Works scholarship system. Students are only required to complete the General Application once each academic year.

How do students log into Colby Community College Academic Works?

Log in information can be found within the CCC website.  Under the “How to Apply” section click on “application page” to be directed to the log in page.  First time users will need to click “Sign Up” and create a profile using their Trojan Email as the username and create a password.

What is the deadline to submit the general application?

The priority deadline is January 31.  The calendar can be found on the CCC website.  All students (prospective or current) should have their general applications submitted by this date to be considered for all CCC scholarships.  Students are encouraged to review  “Scholarship Deadlines” on the Scholarship page of the CCC website to ensure maximum scholarship consideration.

Which questions on the application should students complete?

In addition to completing the required fields, students are encouraged to complete the application to the fullest extent to maximize scholarship consideration.

What are Recommended Opportunities?

By submission of the General Application, students have applied for Institutional and Endowment Foundation scholarships awarded by the college. “Recommended Opportunities” require additional information specific to individual scholarships. Students are encouraged to review the suggested list of Recommended Opportunities and provide any information requested to receive consideration for those scholarships.

How do students receive confirmation of their application submission?

Complete submitted applications are indicated by “Complete” on the General Applications tab when logging into the CCC Academic Works page. Students who have an incomplete application will be directed to the application with a message indicating that the student has unanswered required questions on the General Application.


Automatch Scholarships: Once you complete your General Application, you will be matched with scholarships for which you immediately qualify – no further action is required. To see a list of scholarships that may need additional action on your part to receive consideration, select “Recommended” under “Opportunities.” All students who qualify will be automatched to these opportunities. Qualifying does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship.

Browsing “All” Scholarships: You will find a list of all scholarship opportunities within the Colby Community College Academic Works system. This list shows all scholarships at CCC, not scholarships for which you are receiving consideration. Automatch scholarships will appear with “None” listed under the “Action” column – this means an additional application is not required for consideration. The “Deadline” column indicates the deadline to complete the application to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.

Award Amount: The number and award amount of scholarships are for general information purposes and should not be considered a guarantee of what you will receive if selected. Actual award amounts may vary based on students’ individual eligibility, funds available, and other factors.
