CU Foundation Scholarships

Deadline is February 1.

Scholarships will be awarded for the upcoming fall and spring semesters. Most scholarships will be for the full academic year (both fall and spring semesters). For scholarships that are awarded for the academic year, transcripts will be reviewed after the fall semester in order to ensure that recipients are still meeting the requirements to continue with the scholarship in the spring semester.

Students must re-apply each year to be considered for a scholarship for the next academic year.

Foundation scholarships may be used for tuition costs, fees and/or other educational expenses. Scholarships and amounts may vary from year to year depending on the availability of funds.

Important Information

Each scholarship application you fill out represents YOU, the applicant. If the application is sloppy, dirty or incomplete it sends a message to the selection committee about you. Presentation is important, and the following tips can make a critical difference in whether you receive a scholarship.

  1. READ the application instructions carefully before filling out an application.  If in doubt ASK!
  2. TYPE your application. If you do print, do it VERY NEATLY and legibly. Use black ink. Many times scholarship applications are copied for committee members to review and colored ink does not copy properly.
  3. PROVIDE ALL information that the application requires. Double check your application before handing it in to assure that everything required is there.
  4. PROOFREAD everything you write. Poor grammar and spelling send a negative message about your academic abilities and work habits.
  5. DEADLINES are crucial. Know when the application must be turned in and have it in on time or better yet- early! 
  6. STUDY! Good grades indicate you are a serious and deserving student.
