CU-Boulder Scholarship Application

The 2014-2015 CU-Boulder Scholarship Application is closed.

The CU-Boulder Scholarship application is available every year from November to March through MyCUBoulder for prospective freshmen & transfer students and MyCUInfo for continuing undergraduate & graduate students.

The application requires completing a resume and general 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 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application requirements for each scholarship vary and are available in the portal or the CU-Boulder Scholarship Database.

To complete the application, follow these tips:

A scholarship committee evaluates submitted applications and selects recipients. Scholarships are highly competitive and award criteria may include academic merit, financial need, extracurricular activities, leadership, or other requirements.
