Students Win CU-Boulder Diversity Scholarships

March 5, 1997

Several undergraduate students at the University of Colorado at Boulder have received diversity scholarships to study in other countries.

Two diversity scholarships, one awarded by CU-Boulder and the other by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education, help cover expenses in the Study Abroad program for Colorado residents who are underrepresented on the Boulder campus because they are ethnic minorities or from the state’s rural areas.

Following are the names of diversity scholarship recipients, their hometowns, scholarship name, award amount, location and semester of study abroad and academic major.
