At CU Denver, searching for scholarships has never been
easier. We have two main tools to support you in searching and applying for
scholarships. Our ScholarLynx Application allows you to apply for scholarships
offered by CU Denver. Our Scholarship Universe Application allows you to apply for scholarships
offered by private donors. Both applications identify scholarships that would
be the best fit for you.
Step 1: Apply for CU Denver Scholarships
To be considered for need-based
scholarships complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
by April 1.
If you do not have a citizenship
status that allows you to be considered for financial aid, complete our Alternate
Aid Application in lue of the FAFSA.
Step 2: Apply for Scholarships Through Private Donors
a CU Denver student, you have exclusive access to Scholarship Universe. The application
allows you to apply for scholarships offered by private donors.
deadlines vary by donor and opportunities are available year round.
Step 3: Next Steps
Monitor ScholarLynx for updates
regarding scholarship decisions. If you are selected for a CU Denver scholarship,
we will notify you by university email.
If you are awarded a scholarship
from a private donor, provide the below address to the donor to allow the check
to be mailed to the university.
