CU-Boulder Scholarship Application - Graduate Students

The 2013-14 scholarship application is closed. We are evaluating applications and will notify recipients beginning late May. Unfortunately, many eligible students may not be awarded scholarships as the applicant pool is highly competitive. Students who completed the CU-Boulder scholarship application but are not selected to receive a scholarship can expect e-mail notification by late June (sent to the e-mail address provided on the Admission application).

The 2014-15 CU-Boulder Scholarship application will be available November 1 to March 1 11:59 pm MT through the student portal (MyCUBoulder for new students and MyCUInfo for continuing students.) The application requires completing a resume and essay. Additionally, some of the scholarships may require writing a special essay, submitting recommendation letters, or documenting eligibility. Any scholarship that has financial need as criteria for eligibility also requires a completed FAFSA. The application requirements for each scholarship are available in the student portal.
