Scholarships and Financial Aid

Students receive scholarships at Collins Scholarship Luncheon

At The Collins College of Hospitality Management, we understand that the cost of education can be burdensome for many students. It is one of our top priorities to supplement the cost as much as we can. Thanks to numerous donations over the years, The Collins College has accumulated $3.5 million in endowed scholarships yielding about $100,000 every year to deserving students. In addition to College-based scholarships, Collins students have access to numerous private industry scholarships that total about $100,000 each year.

There are also a variety of scholarships and student loans available through Cal Poly Pomona and the  Office of Financial Aid.
