Our Opportunities

Welcome to the College of DuPage Scholarship Portal!

Due to delayed opening of the 2024-2025 FAFSA, COD Foundation Scholarships for Fall 2024 that do not require FAFSA completion will open on February 5, 2024. FAFSA required scholarships will open on February 15, 2024.

Currently scholarship opportunities are available for the Fall 2024 (unless noted otherwise in the descriptions). Below you will find a listing of scholarships available to COD students with brief information about the scholarship criteria. In order to apply, you must be a registered, current or incoming COD student, with a user name and password from MyAccess.

  • Sign in using your COD log in credentials through the applicant/administrator side – prompted to Sign In With Institution.
  • Complete your General Application (a series of qualifying questions). Please note this is only to qualify, once you submit the general application you will get a “recommended” scholarship that you will need to look over and apply. This does not automatically generate an application to all scholarships. This is just a preliminary questionnaire to determine certain scholarships you may be eligible to apply for.
  • Please note all scholarships are listed by the most recent application deadline to the oldest, and in alphabetical order. If you need to find one in specific, use keywords in the search bar to find it. Applications have a 11:59 pm deadline on the deadline date listed.
  • Note, if a scholarship action says NONE, these are auto-matches applications. You are automatically considered for these scholarships based on your general application.
  • All notifications regarding scholarship applications are sent to your dupage.edu email address. Make sure you are checking your COD email regularly. Scholarships are NOT guaranteed, they are a gift.
