Who can qualify for the scholarship?

The scholarship provided by CCTC is designed to financially assist nursing students through college. All nursing students are encouraged to apply for the scholarships, which also include bridge programs.

If I am an LVN student, can I qualify for the scholarship?

CCTC currently does not have any scholarship programs designed for LVN or medical assistant students.

Will I qualify for the scholarship if I am based outside of California and if I study in a school outside of California?

Even if you are a nursing student, you must be a California resident in order to qualify for the scholarship. You must present your California Drivers License to prove that you are a resident of California.

Do I need certification in BLS (Basic Life Support), ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support), and PALS (Pediatric Advance Life Support) in order to qualify for the scholarship?

Though CCTC offers courses in ACLS, BLS, CPR, PALS, and ECG & Pharmacology, the scholarship does not require its students to have certifications in those courses.

What happens after I’ve posted my essay?

Once your essay has been posted, it will go through a qualification round where a team of CCTC instructors will choose 20 essays that have been reviewed and assessed for their content and creativity. These 20 essays will be posted online where the public can vote on which essay is the best.

What does it mean if my essay was not published?

Essays that have not been published are the ones that did not qualify or meet the standards of CCTC. Please review the schedule if you would like to submit another essay for any of the upcoming scholarship programs.

If my essays were not chosen, will I still be able to apply again?

Yes. CCTC will still accept essays throughout the years so long as a scholarship program is being offered.

Once my essay has been posted, how can I get people to vote for it?

There are so many ways for participants to share their essays online in order to collect votes. You can share the link through social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social media outlets. You can also spread the link through E-mail and send it to your family members, colleagues, and peers.

If I win, could I apply again?

Each student can win a maximum of $2,500 annually.
