    Scholarships for CIA Degree Program Students:

    CIA Merit Scholarship

    Students who have demonstrated academic excellence as shown by their GPA (high school, college, or both), leadership qualities, and SAT/ACT scores (if available) are eligible for a merit-based scholarship applied specifically to tuition charges. These students are identified through the admissions process and do not need to apply separately for this scholarship.

    • The scholarship is renewable annually if the student maintains a cumulative 3.0 GPA.
    • Students receiving other tuition-specific awards that cover tuition in full—such as veterans education benefits and Yellow Ribbon benefits—are not eligible for this scholarship.
    • Students receiving other tuition-specific awards that do not cover tuition in full may be eligible for a prorated merit award if combining the full merit award with the other awards would exceed total tuition charges.

    CIA Need-based Grant

    This grant is awarded to degree program students who show demonstrated need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This award is renewable if the student completes the FAFSA by the priority deadline, has a calculated financial need, and is maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements. Students receiving Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits of 50% or higher are not eligible for this grant.

    CIA Alumni Referral Scholarship

    The college offers this scholarship to prospective students, including international students, who submit a letter from a CIA graduate encouraging them to apply to the CIA. This letter should be submitted with the application for admission. Only one award will be given per student for the freshman first year at the CIA. This award is not renewable for subsequent years.

    CIA Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship

    The CIA Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Scholarship is awarded to students—at the time of admission and upon receipt of official transcripts with PTK designation—who transfer from a community college that has entered into an articulation agreement with the CIA. International students and students using veterans educational benefits are not eligible. This scholarship is renewable with a 3.25 cumulative GPA.

    SAT/ACT Achievement Scholarship

    While SAT and ACT test scores are not required for admission to the CIA, students who submit their test results during the admissions process will be considered for this scholarship. Students with a minimum SAT Math and Reading combined score of 1,000 or ACT composite score of 22 will receive this one-time award for their freshman year.

    National Student Organization (NSO) Scholarship—National and State Level Competitions

    The CIA supports national and state competitions in culinary arts, baking and pastry arts, or culinary management competitions.

    These competitions are sponsored by:

    • SkillsUSA
    • Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA)
    • ProStart
    • NAACP’s Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological, and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO)
    • American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (AHLEI)

    At many of these competitions the students who place first, second, or third will receive a certificate for scholarships to attend the CIA. The amounts of these awards vary and are set each year by the college. Scholarships are renewable annually with a GPA of 3.0 or better.

    Students must submit the certificate to the CIA prior to enrolling and may receive only one NSO competition scholarship. If a student has won multiple competitions, we will honor the award with the highest monetary value. Winners must enroll by June of the year following their senior year of high school. All competition scholarships are for secondary level only, with the exception of the SkillsUSA first-place winner in the national postsecondary culinary arts or restaurant management competitions.
