Transfer Scholarships

Thanks to the support of donors to our endowment, the Collin College Foundation is able to offer transfer scholarships to select students who are completing their associate degrees here at Collin College and who will continue their higher education journeys at one of our  university partners in the Fall 2020.

Do you have at least a 3.3 GPA? Have you completed over 50 hours at Collin College? Are you transferring to a 4-year partner University in Fall 2020?  

 Transfer scholarship applications are currently closed. Check back in Mid-January

Applicants must complete the general application then be directed to the transfer application upon answering "YES" to the question "Will you be transferring to a 4-year University this fall?" 

If you do not meet any of the following criteria, please do not finish or submit an application.
