We encourage you to apply for a scholarship. Some are need-based while others are not. School of Education & Human Development scholarships are usually administered through the school. To apply for these awards, please complete the online scholarship application. Be sure to read the scholarship criteria carefully before applying. If you have questions about the application process, please contact the Scholarship Resource Office at 303-352-3608.
Scholarship awards are determined by the School's scholarship committee which includes faculty and staff. Award amounts may vary semester to semester. If you aren't awarded a scholarship the first time you apply, please reapply for any scholarship you are interested in if you continue to meet the criteria. If you have a specific question relating to our scholarships, please contact Academic Services.
