Scholarships

A college degree is an investment, and there are generous organizations and donors who are ready to help invest in your future, too. Each year, CU Denver undergraduate students are awarded more than $30 million in scholarships and grant packages from institutional, private, local, state, and national sources. Overall, about 72% of full-time undergraduate students with financial need who apply for aid receive a need-based scholarship or grant award every year.

Even if you or your family members have done it before, earning a scholarship can seem like a complicated and confusing process at times. But at CU Denver, we are here to support you in finding the right assistance to fund your education. Remember, a bill should not be a barrier to success.
