You’re automatically considered for Columbia College Chicago scholarships when you're admitted to the college. We offer renewable scholarships that take into consideration academic achievements, artistic talent, and financial need. For academic achievement and financial need scholarships: submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with Columbia’s school code (001665). For talent-based scholarships: submit a digital portfolio or audition that demonstrates your best creative work. International students entering Columbia for the first time in the fall may be considered for the talent-based scholarship. Additionally, Columbia offers many scholarships for current students, and we encourage you to apply to as many as you can.
