The CU Boulder Outstanding Colorado Student Award is a partnership between Colorado high schools and the university. The University of Colorado Boulder would like to recognize one of your school’s outstanding juniors.
Students selected for the Outstanding Colorado Student Award will receive a $4,000 scholarship ($1,000 per year), which will be automatically added to their financial aid package if they are admitted to and enroll at CU Boulder. Outstanding Colorado Student Award recipients and their families will also be invited to a special reception and visit program on the CU Boulder campus, where they will be introduced to numerous opportunities available to CU Boulder’s top students. Finally, as a special offer of congratulations, we will waive the admission application fee for these students.
We hope you will collaborate with your colleagues, who may also have been invited to submit nominations, to nominate your school’s Outstanding Colorado Student.
Nominations are closed at this time.
