Scholarships, Grants, and Loans
Every college develops its own unique program of financial aid offerings to help students and parents meet the cost of attendance. The financial aid program
at Clearwater Christian College includes typical programs available through federal and state government sources as well as a growing list of
institutional scholarship programs. To discover what programs are considered when developing your personal aid packet, click on the link below.
How is Financial Aid Awarded?
Clearwater Christian College awards preliminary financial aid upon admission to the College. All students are encouraged to complete the
(Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as it is the basis for all financial aid. Florida residents are also required to submit applications
for the FRAG (Florida Resident Access Grant), Florida's
Bright Futures, and other possible state
Home-Schooled Students: please click on the following link for important information to apply for Florida scholarships:
You Do Not Have to Apply for Institutional Scholarships
Institutional scholarships are awarded based upon your ACT and/or SAT score, financial aid need
(FAFSA), and the information you provide on your application for admission (major, residency, interests).
The sources of aid come from one or more scholarship programs or as a special CCC Award.
Because of their unique requirements, students interested in receiving a Business,
Servant Leadership scholarship must provide additional
information to the CCC Financial Aid Office. Click on the appropriate links above to discover program requirements and to
download the required forms.
All students are notified of their financial aid through an award letter. After the initial letter, you may receive an updated award letter when a change
is made to your financial aid.
Students are required to update their FAFSA and FRAG
(FL residents only) information each year. The amount awarded to returning students through institutional scholarship programs is determined by the
College at the conclusion of each academic year.
You are advised to pursue your financial aid options as early as possible. Due to the nature of some institutional scholarship programs, you are encouraged to
submit your updated FAFSA by March 1.
Jillian, a senior music education major from Riverview, Florida plans to use her CCC education on the mission field after graduation.
"After I graduate," she said, "I want to eventually go to the mission field and start a home for orphaned and abandoned children and share
with them the love of Christ." Jillian has learned that God provides everything we need; all we have to do is trust His plan. She is the
recipient of several grants and scholarships including the Academic Competitiveness Grant, the CCC Founders Award, the Florida Medallion
Scholarship, FRAG, and FSAG.
"The financial aid people at CCC are so amazing! I am so thankful for how they have helped me find and apply for funds so that I can stay
at a Christian school. They are such a blessing."
