What is the CU-LEAD Alliance?

three students conferringThe CU Leadership, Excellence, Achievement, and Diversity (CU-LEAD) Alliance is a unique set of academic learning communities whose students, faculty, and staff are united to promote inclusive excellence. These “academic neighborhoods” foster scholastic camaraderie and promote student success through enhanced instruction, small group classes, leadership activities, computer labs, personal links to faculty and staff, scholarships, research experiences, advising, mentoring and tutoring, and community service for students of color and first-generation students.

CU-LEAD Alliance Scholarship Program

The Ofelia Miramontes CU-LEAD Alliance Scholarship Fund is aimed at recruiting and retaining a diverse student body. The scholarship program offers a range of services and financial benefits for highly motivated students of color and first generation college students. Eligible students must be enrolled in one of the CU-LEAD Alliance neighborhoods.  Recipients receive a scholarship annually and may participate in the program for four years at CU-Boulder contingent upon their academic progress and fulfillment of program requirements.
