Please note that you must be ACCEPTED into CIAM to be eligible for a CiAM scholarship.

CiAM Merit and Achievement Scholarships are awarded to students based on academic merit, or professional, or extraprofessional achievements. These scholarships are funded through the generous support of Mr. and Mrs. Shao and are for tuition and fees only. Some scholarships are available regardless of financial need. Entering students apply for University scholarships via the Scholarship Application. When awarding scholarships, CiAM must follow all federal and state laws and regulations of aid programs. Our decisions are based on these rules, the information you provide, the number of applicants, and the total funds available.
