The Columbia College Alumni Association has announced the formation of the CCAA Scholars Program. As part of the organization’s 50th Anniversary celebration, three $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to students at the CCAA Reunion Weekend scheduled for April 25 and 26.

“This is a historic endeavor for the Alumni Association,” said CCAA Board of Directors President Bill Leeper. “We are very excited to offer this new element of support to Columbia College students. Two of the Alumni Association’s core values are excellence and opportunity, and we believe these scholarships will assist our honorees in fulfilling those values.”

The deadline for submission is March 14. Applications must be submitted online, and applicants must provide a personal statement detailing what the student’s time at Columbia College has meant to them and/or how they feel the college has been beneficial. Students from all Columbia College campuses around the country are welcome to apply.
