The CU Boulder Scholarship application is available year-round, with the majority of scholarships being available from October 1 to February 15. Incoming students (freshmen, transfer students) access the application through MyCUBoulder and continuing undergraduate & graduate students access it through MyCUInfo.
The general application requires information about extracurricular activities, community service, work and an essay. Additional recommended scholarship opportunities may display that require writing a special essay, submitting reference letters, or documenting eligibility. Any scholarship that has financial need as criteria for eligibility also requires completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the scholarship deadline. Eligibility and application requirements for each scholarship vary and are available in the portal or the CU Boulder Scholarship Search Tool.
