CST Scholarships are established through the generosity of alumni, friends, corporations and foundations. Many were created to honor or memorialize a favorite professor, a cherished classmate or a beloved spouse. These scholarships are awarded annually based on the criteria set forth by the donor. The application and a list of available CST Scholarships can be found through Academicworks. The list of scholarships is also included below.
The application for the 2021-2022 scholarships will open soon. Once open, students will be notified of the timeline to apply.
To apply to one or more CST Scholarships:
- Log in to Academicworks.
- Answer and submit the general application questions.
- Under the Opportunities drop-down menu, select Recommended under Scholarship. A list of CST scholarships for which you are eligible to apply should appear.
- To apply to any CST scholarship, select the Apply button under Actions. Responses must be submitted for 2-3 short answer questions, most of which are common for all of the scholarships. Please limit your answers to 100 words or less.
- You must apply separately to each scholarship, so if applying to multiple scholarships, we recommend writing your responses in a word document first so that you can copy/paste to each scholarship as appropriate.
Please note: Only students who apply will be considered for CST Scholarships.
