Our Opportunities

  • Sign in using your CIA Main Menu username 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.

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 “Recommended” you are not currently eligible for any CIA scholarships. Please check back regularly to see if new scholarships have been added. Most of them 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 where we list all of the scholarships from external sources other than the CIA that we are aware of. These are updated every few weeks. Links are provided for you.
