Scholarship & Funding Information

There are no in-house scholarships at the Academy. However, you may find support from an external scholarship organizations, several of which are listed on this page. Each program requires application according to specific criteria. In many instances, the websites will require you to create a new account. Many are beneficial; though some may seem less useful. Please make sure to also search our News/Events page for updates on the latest scholarships.

Although  many organizations and foundations around the world assist students, unfortunately, TCM scholarships remain difficult to find. At ACCHS, we recommend that students searching for scholarships go beyond the Internet and invest some time researching scholarships at a local public library. In most cases, the librarian or reference assistant will be able to assist anyone who is interested in finding out about organizations that contribute funds towards student education. Many times, you may find several usable organizations that you would not normally find on the Internet. The Internet’s scholarship resources may be rife with account scams, restricted access (unless you pay), and pop-up windows that lead nowhere. Therefore, when searching for scholarship resources online, use caution.

Remember to visit your local library and ask for assistance. You may be surprised at what you find.
