All Opportunities

Welcome to Triton College’s Scholarship Application. Below is a list of scholarships available to Triton students including a brief description about the scholarship qualifications. Each scholarship has an application period that may run from six weeks to five months. As you click on the scholarship description, the date the institution will begin accepting applications is listed. Please mark your calendar to apply for future scholarships during the specified application period.

CURRENT STUDENTS may log in to apply for scholarships using their student portal username and password for access.

NEW STUDENTS will first need to complete a Triton College application, placement tests (or provide documentation of equivalent completion), and New Student Orientation. Once these steps have been completed, the student will receive an email with the student portal username and password in order to log in to apply for scholarships. Please view https://www.triton.edu/mytriton/ for additional information on accessing and managing your Triton portal. If you are a high school senior and unable to complete the steps above to receive portal access, once you submit an application for admission, you may contact webadvisor@triton.edu and request access to the portal in order to complete the scholarship application. In your email, please include your name and date of birth to ensure accurate assignment of username and password. You may then sign in to the Triton College Electronic Scholarship Application using your student portal username and password.

Once logged in, first complete the General Application. Once the General Application is submitted, you will be recommended scholarships for which you may apply based on your answers to the questions on the General Application. Click “Apply” to answer questions specific to each recommended scholarship, then click “Finish and Submit”. There are other scholarships for which you may qualify based on the General Application alone. These are called auto-match scholarships and you do not need to take any additional steps to apply once your General Application is submitted.

After you have completed the General Application and scholarship-specific application(s), you will be able to view your active applications for scholarships on the Applications page.

If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the scholarship office at (708) 456-0300, ext. 3616, or email finaid@triton.edu.
