Freshmen entering the college in the fall of 2013 will be automatically offered an Engineering Merit Scholarship if they qualify for the CU-Boulder Esteemed Scholars Program, the Chancellor’s Achievement Scholarship, and the Presidential Scholarship. Students admitted to the college who have received one of the above named scholarships will be offered a $4,000, four-year Engineering Merit Scholarship ($1,000 per academic year). Renewal criteria for the Engineering Merit Scholarship is slightly different from the campus scholarships and will be included in the student’s offer letter.
For information and requirements for the Esteemed, Chancellor’s, or Presidential Scholarships, please refer to www.colorado.edu/finaid/faqs-scholarships.html.
Students who were not offered a four-year New Freshman Merit Scholarship have an opportunity to earn a college annual merit scholarship after their freshman year. During the period between mid-October and March 1, freshman, sophomore, and junior students with a cumulative CU-Boulder grade-point average of at least 3.000 are encouraged to apply for scholarships. Most scholarships are funded by alumni and friends of the college, or by companies with an interest in students in a specific major. These scholarships usually range in value from $500 to $1,750 per year. Students are selected to receive these scholarships based upon the criteria established by the donor or in the spirit of the gift to the college. The scholarship application does not ensure an award, and the number of awards depends upon available funding. The student will be notified of the college scholarship award during the month of August. Students must reapply for scholarship consideration the following years.
All scholarships are awarded on the basis of the applicant’s scholastic ability and academic achievement, unless otherwise indicated by the donor. Students must submit online scholarship applications by March 1 to be considered for an award in the next academic year. Students must be enrolled in an engineering curriculum and maintain a CU-Boulder cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.000.
Renewal criteria varies depending on when you entered the college. Please check the terms listed on your scholarship offer letter, or contact the college’s scholarship coordinator at 303-735-2440.
