1. COM Foundation Scholarships are awarded yearly to help students pay for tuition and textbooks. By filling out one application, students will be considered for all scholarships for which they qualify, including those with special selection criteria. Part-time and full-time students are eligible for most scholarships. Financial need is more important than G.P.A. You must have applied to COM to apply for a COM Foundation scholarship. Go to www.com.edu/scholarships. Only one foundation scholarship will be awarded to any student. Most foundation scholarships are $500 per fall and spring semesters. Textbook scholarships and summer scholarships are also available, and no additional application is necessary. When applying, students will indicate an additional interest in a textbook or summer scholarship.
  2. Donor-designated scholarships are for a specific student from mostly non-governmental sources. The scholarships do not need to be paid back by the student. Some scholarships may be refunded to the student for living expenses while others may not. The donor of the scholarship determines whether the scholarship may be refundable.
  3. Departmental scholarships are offered each year through COM departments and generally based on student performance, merit, skill and ability. Specific information and application requirements may be obtained by contacting the particular department of the scholarship in which the student is interested.
