Distribution of Funds

A check will be sent to the scholarship administrator at the school specified on the application. Every effort will be made to send funds early in the semester; however, applicants should be prepared to pay their bills in full. The recipient’s school will credit his/her tuition and fees bill for the amount of the scholarship for that semester. If the student’s bill is paid in full at the time the scholarship is received and the student’s scholarship and other financial aid do not exceed the institution’s cost of attendance, the student will receive a refund for the full amount of the scholarship. Students who withdraw from school are not eligible to keep the scholarship for that semester. Their institution will be asked to refund the scholarship in full to CU-Boulder.

Changing Schools or Semester of Enrollment

Please notify Scholarship Services ASAP if the institution the student chooses to attend changes from that specified on this application. We will require a refund from the institution reported on the initial application before the scholarship will be sent to the new school. Additionally, please notify our office if the term of enrollment specified on the application has changed.

The University of Colorado also offers a Faculty/Staff Tuition Benefit to eligible employees which may be transferred to their eligible dependents. For more information contact the Bursar's Office.
