  • You must have had your resume reviewed and approved
  • Applicants for First-Year Explore grants must meet with a CCI advisor to discuss your plans

  • Your application essay
  • A completed summer budget
  • A signed funding agreement

Do not start your application until you have the above four documents completed and ready to upload. No zip files.  Due to the volume of submissions, incomplete applications will be declined.

See instructions, forms, and FAQs at go/summerfunding. For help, make an appointment with a CCI advisor or stop by quick questions to speak with a PCA.
