Our Opportunities

  • Sign in using your CIA Main Menu username (not your full e-mail address) and password.
  • Fill out the General Application and submit it. If you leave it in a “drafted” state, you will not be considered for any opportunities.
  • After submitting the General Application click the “Opportunities” tab. There you will see the choices: Recommended, Ours, and External.
  • Funds awarded through CIA scholarships (“Ours”) will be posted to the 2019-2020 academic year unless otherwise stated.
  • The next and final postings for 2019-2020 will be January 9, January 24, and February 7. These awards are primarily for the summer semesters in this academic year but may also be posted to spring if you have a balance.
  • The $hef website will close for updates in May.
  • All students are required to complete a new General Application when the site reopens in June. Opportunities posted in June will be awarded on the Fall semester.
  • For news and updates about the $hef site, please follow CIA Financial Services on Facebook or Twitter and check the Student Financial Services student portal regularly.

Notes:

  • “Recommended” are the CIA scholarships that are currently being offered that you meet the criteria for. This is the group you want to concentrate on. If you do not see any “Recommended” opportunities, you are not currently eligible for any CIA scholarships. Please check back regularly to see if new scholarships have been added. Most are posted in June, September, and January. You can follow CIA Financial Services on Facebook or Twitter for updates.
  • “Ours” are all the scholarships that the CIA offers; but they may not be available at all times.
  • “External” are scholarships from external sources other than the CIA that we are aware of. These are updated every few weeks. General information and links are provided for you.
