The links also direct you to the Academic Works postings.

CPS Scholarships Google Calendar:

CPS has created a CPS Scholarships Google Calendar that consists of the open and closign dates for each scholarship that we update in our system. CPS also have postsecondary and scholarship activities on this calendar as well. It's public and students and schools have already begun using it. This will help with application completion.
