STARS

Applying for scholarships with the CGTC Foundation has never been easier! Students can now apply online and check the status of a scholarship application without ever picking up the phone.

Printable Checklist for Applying Online

Click HERE for printable instructions that will show you how to get started with STARS.
Have your academic transcript ready – you will need it to answer some of the questions on the application. You can access your transcript from BannerWeb.
Go to STARS using Internet Explorer (other browsers such as Chrome and Firefox do not work with STARS). If you have already used STARS, please DO NOT create a new account. Use the username and password that you used last semester.
Complete the online application and apply for the scholarship(s) that you are eligible for.
Check STARS to make sure that your current CGTC instructor has submitted the recommendation that you requested:
  1. Log into STARS using Internet Explorer.
  2. Click the Letter of Recommendation tab.
  3. Look in the Responded column: if your instructor has submitted a recommendation for you, you will see Responded and the date in the Responded column. If you see No Response, your instructor has not submitted a recommendation for you. You can send another request to your instructor by clicking the Re-Send button.
  4. Your application will not be considered complete until the instructor recommendation has been received.
Check your student email account and the email address that you used in STARS frequently. All scholarship announcements will be sent to these email accounts. Foundation staff cannot provide scholarship award information over the phone.
